  1. Put the meat in a large pot with the oil, onion, salt and pepper, ginger and saffron. Cover with water and cook, covered, for 45 minutes to 1 hour until the meat is very tender and properly cooked, adding water to keep it covered in its sauce.
  2. Add the peas, tomatoes, preserved lemon and olives and cook uncovered a few minutes longer, until the peas are tender and the sauce reduced. Serve.

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
