Persian Beef-and-Split-Pea Stew

120 mins (prep 30)
18 ingredients
makes 6 servings
Omani lemons (also called Persian dried limes) give a sour, slightly musty, and very authentic taste to this stew. They intensify the saffron, so if you want to scale back a bit on that flavor, omit them and add extra Key lime or lemon juice at the end.
