Lamb and barley hot pot
Inspired by the Hairy Bikers
This is a hearty meal, and a great winter warmer. There is something fantastic about the combination of pearl barley and lamb which makes this dish quite delicious. It’s super easy to make, but does take some time to cook. Works great as a Sunday evening meal.
