For an even simpler method, throw the wheat berries and water or broth in a slow cooker for 4 hours on "high" or 8 hours on "low".
Cooked Wheat Berries

Contrary to popular belief, wheat berries do not require an overnight soak before cooking. Simply boil them for 1 hour to soften the kernels, which will produce their characteristically chewy texture.

I rinse the grain several times or until the water runs clear. I cook the grain in beef or chicken broth for a fuller flavor and use it just as you would rice. It's great with meats and vegetables. For something unusual (for Westerners) try "freekeh" instead of couscous or basamati.
