Beef Tajine with Lemon Oregano Sauce

Ingredients:
3 pounds lean lamb, beef or bison chunks, 2×2″ squares
6 cups water
2 large onions, sliced very thin
Good pinch saffron
1 teaspoon turmeric
2 tablespoons dry thyme or oregano
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
Ground pepper to taste

Directions:
Cook the beef chunks in the water at medium flame, covered, for two hours. Add the onions, saffron, turmeric and cook covered on a medium flame for 1 hour. Uncover, add the thyme, lemon juice and pepper and cook 2-3 more minutes. Transfer the meat with a slotted spoon onto a platter. Check the liquid in the pot: If it is too thin, reduce on a high flame for a few minutes until thickened, and pour over the meat.
