Beef, Potato and Okra Curry Recipe

Ingredients :

850 g lean steak

3 medium size potatoes

200 g orka

1 cup onion which is roughly chopped

5 cloves crushed garlic

3 teaspoons finely chopped ginger

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon ground cumin

2 cups beef stock

Cut up the steak into cubes of about 3 cm. Remove the potato skins and also cut into cubes. Halve the okra lengthways if it is too big, otherwise keep it whole without cutting. Using a food processor, mix the ginger, garlic, paprika, turmeric and the chili and process them into a thick paste.

Heat 4 tablespoons cooking oil in a large heavy frying pan. Saute the onion mixture and cook for 20 minutes over a low heat. If the mixture starts to burn, add a little water as necessary. Cook until the color turns to golden brown. Add in the meat and continue cooking by stirring until the meat is brown which is about 5~6 minutes. Add the cumin.

Pour in the beef stock and simmer for about 2~2.5 hours with a lid on or until the meat becomes tender. Add the okra and potato cubes 45 minutes before the meat is cooked. In the last 10~15 minutes, remove the wok cover so that the sauce can reduce and becomes thicken. Add salt according to taste, garlic, chives before serving with white steamed rice.
