S is for Saloona

Saloona is probably my kids' second favorite dish, after molokhiya.  To some this may sound like complete and utter gibberish.

Allow me to elaborate.  This is saloona:

I am not sure where the term "saloona" came from, but it is basically a thick and hearty stew that is cooked on low heat for a few hours.  The result, fall-of-the-bone meat soaked in an explosion of flavor and perfectly cooked vegetables.

I serve it with brown rice and a wedge of lemon.
