In a broad, shallow saucepan, brown the meat in the olive oil on all sides over medium heat. Add the lemon zest, onion and garlic. Crush or mill the allspice and add to the meat. Pour in the wine, cook away the alcohol and lower the heat to a simmer until the meat is tender. You may need to add a few tablespoons of water if it starts getting dry.
Toward the end of cooking, add the honey and lemon juice, stir gently and remove from heat.
Serve with boiled potatoes or plain white rice.
