this was a great dinner that i cooked in stages. i boiled the meat and veggies first, cooled the meat, reduced the boiling liquid added the tomatoes shredded the meat and refrigerated everything over night. the next day i just sauteed the peppers and added them to the reheated stew along with the peas and olives. i did add extra cumin, very good dinner. i didn't make the rice as we're low carbing.
