Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over high heat. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon salt over steak cubes; cook and stir meat in the hot oil with onion and garlic until meat is seared, about 5 minutes; reduce heat to medium; cook and stir until meat is browned, about 3 more minutes. Remove steak pieces and set aside.
  2. Stir tomato sauce and tomato paste into same pot; mix in okra, water, coriander, white pepper, and cumin. Bring to a boil; season with additional salt. Reduce heat to low and simmer until okra is tender, 30 to 45 minutes; return pieces of beef to the bamia. Simmer until flavors are blended, about 10 minutes; garnish with slices of jalapeno pepper.

Yummy! Served it over spaghetti squash. I also added the jalapeño directly to the dish instead of using it as garnish.

We enjoyed this recipe. Very nice flavor. We used chopped tomatoes instead of tomato sauce and water buffalo meat instead of beef.

It turned out pretty good, I used fresh okra. I felt it to be a little bland even after putting the jalepeno in the pot so I added some curry and that jazzed it up.
