I found this at an Argentinian website. Looks tasty so I'm submitting it for the Culinary Quest 2014. I spent a lot of time translating this but it looks readable, understandable & do-able. The beans can cook concurrently alongside the wheat berries & when the mean is added. You don't *have* to presoak beans - in fact, I just ad them to salted water & boil lightly (hard simmer?) them for a couple of hours. Ta-daa!

I hope you enjoy this.
