EATING MY EMPIRE
Preheat a 5-to-6-quart slow cooker. Season lamb with salt and pepper. In a large Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high. Add lamb and cook until golden brown all over, about 8 minutes. Transfer to slow cooker.
Add onions, carrots, celery, and dill to Dutch oven; cook, stirring often, until vegetables are tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to slow cooker, along with garlic, thyme, wine, orange juice, lime, and saffron.
Cover and cook on low until meat is falling apart and shreds easily, 7 to 8 hours (or on high 5 to 6 hours). Skim fat from surface. Serve stew over quinoa, topped with dill, pomegranate seeds, and pistachios.
