Heat the oil in a Dutch oven casserole and saute the onions until almost soft. Add the garlic and cook until onions are soft. Add. Add the pork, a few pieces at a time, and brown (char a little). Add the tomatoes, saffron, salt (if needed), black pepper, chile, cinnamon, cloves, and broth and optional annato. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 40 to 50 mins.

Add the potatoes and continue to cook until the potatoes are done, about 30 minutes. Add the bananas *before* the potatoes are done but the bananas need about 10 mins at most. Make a well and tilt the pan so that the liquids pool. Pour the sauce ingredients gently combine; simmer until heated through, taking care that the "cream" does not boil. Serve immediately with warmed tortillas and mixed salad greens, undressed or a little lemon-lime juice.
