How to Make It
Combine stock, onion, barley, apricots, tomato paste, salt, cumin, coriander, red pepper, garlic, and cinnamon sticks in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Cook lamb in 2 batches, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides, about 8 minutes. Add browned lamb to slow cooker. Cover, and cook on low 8 hours. Discard cinnamon sticks.
Turn off slow cooker; stir in cilantro, raisins, and lemon juice just before serving.
