Okra stew

Okro/Okra however you like to call it, its still the same. I loveee it and it goes perfectly well with some banku or kenkey or eba(gari)  

  • 2 & a half  onions
  • 4 tomatoes
  • 1/3 teaspoon of ginger
  • 1 scotch bonnet pepper (Or jamaican hot pepper)
  • 1 or 2lbs of goat meat
  • 1/2 cup palm oil or regular vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 or 2 packs of cut okra(they are sold in almost every supermarket)
  • 1/2 salted fish(koobi, this however is optional)
  • Spices to taste(as always I used my lawry's seasoning salt,my black pepper and etc for this)
  1. Wash goat meat,clean it very well(removing all sights of fat and all) and season it, then steam for about 20 mins(or until it's no longer pink)
  2. Blend the 2 onions,tomatoes,pepper and ginger
  3. By now the goat meat should be steamed, you can choose to pour your oil on the goat meat now or if you are anything like me in a separate cooking pot, slice half an onion,sauté it in the oil(add koobi if you are using some),after a minute of stirring add the goat meat and blended ingredients and allow it to cook for about 15mins
  4. Add your cut okra to the stew now (if you are adding any other dried fish or salmon to the stew now is the best time to add it)and allow it to simmer for 10mins, season it and let it cook for another 15mins then your stew will be all ready
Ps: if you are going to be using fresh okra make sure you wash it well, cut the top and bottom off. Chop it into little pieces and go to step 4.
