Beef and Okra Stew Recipe

Beef and Okra Stew Recipes

Ingredients :

2 tsp olive oil

2 medium onions, cut into eights

1kg chuck steak, trimmed and cut into 2cm cubes

1/3 cup red wine

1/4 cup tomato paste

1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander

8 baby potatoes, quartered

2 cups beef stock

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

350g okra or 2 x 375g cans okra, rinsed and drained

Method :

Heat oil in heavy-based pan; add onions. Cook over medium-high heat until well browned. Add meat in small batches and cook 2-3 minutes, stirring, until browned on all sides. Once all meat is browned, return it to the pan. Add wine, tomato paste and coriander to pan. Cover and simmer 35 minutes. Add the potatoes and beef stock, and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Stir through parsley and okra and simmer for 10 minutes. If using canned okra add to stew in last 5 minutes of cooking. Serve stew with bread and rice or extra vegetables.

Note : If okra is unavailable, use squash or zucchini cut into 3cm lengths. To prepare fresh okra, lightly peel the conical stem attached to the pod. Sprinkle with vinegar and leave to stand for 30 minutes, then rinse and drain. Okra has a delicious taste but a slightly slimy texture. Marinating them in vinegar helps reduce this and makes for a crunchier mixture.
