Okra with rice

Tonight for dinner I made an Egyptian meal, it’s another recipe that I got from Grandma while I was visiting Dallas. Its delicious and fairly easy to make! We also make this same dish with chopped spinach, green beans, or green peas.



  • I lb beef stew cubes
  • 1 tbsp margarine
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 15 ounce can tomato sauce
  • Water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp of lemon juice
  • 1 package of cut okra (from the frozen vegetables section)
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  1. Place 1 tablepsoon margarine in medium-sized pan.  Add onions and cook until a golden yellow color.

  2. Add beef cubes.  Once beef is browned, add 1 can of tomato sauce.  Now fill up empty tomato sauce can with water and add to beef and tomato sauce mixture.
  3. Bring to boil and allow meat to fully cook.  (About 15 minutes, for smaller pieces of beef).
  4. Add salt, pepper, lemon juice, and orka.  Bring to boil.  Allow to boil for 10 minutes.  Then lower heat, cover, and allow to simmer for 20 minutes.

  5. Serve over rice.  Enjoy!!
