Give a person a meal of okra and lamb stew and you feed them for a day. Give the recipe and you feed them for a lifetime.

Okra and Lamb Stew

2 Tb Olive Oil
1 Lb Lamb, small cubes
or
1˝ Lb Lamb stew beef with bone
1 Ea Onion, minced
2 Cl Garlic, minced
2 Tb Tomato Paste
14 Oz Canned Tomato
C White Wine
˝ Tb Cumin
˝ Tb Paprika
˝ Tb Oregano
TT S&P
TT Beef or Chicken Broth
1 Lb Okra
1 Tb Lemon Juice

Heat the oil in a 3-4 quart sauté pan and brown the lamb in batches. Remove to a plate.

Add more oil if needed and cook the onion and garlic until they begin to brown.

Add the paste and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring often.

Add the meat and accumulated juices, the tomato, wine and seasonings. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer, covered for 1-1˝ hours until the meat is tender.

Add broth as needed to thin the sauce to your taste.

Add the okra and simmer until they are cooked to the desired level of doneness.

I made a pan of beef/pork meatballs today for the freezer. Used the drippings to make gravy, so it's meatballs and gravy and mash potatoes. And a half acorn squash baked. I have a hankering for some ice cream and I think I will make a quick run up to the store.

Well, I made it to the store so the Chop Steak is on! Last minute addition, I thought it was absolutely imperative to make a blackberry cobbler. Lives depend on it.

1 1/2 Lbs. Round Steak, tenderized
2 Tbslp. Vege Oil
4 Lg. Tomatoes, peeled, chopped
2 Lg. Carrots, sliced
2 Tblsp. Worcestershire Sauce
2 Tblsp. Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Flour
Salt & Pepper
1 Tblsp. Dry Mustard

Mix together Flour, Salt, Pepper, Mustard. Cut meat into portions. Press into Flour mixture.
Heat Vege Oil in Dutch Oven and fry steaks to brown both sides.
Combine Tomatoes, Carrots, Worcestershire & Brown Sugar.
Pour over Meat in Dutch Oven.
Cover and either bake in oven at 350 or simmer on stovetop for 90 minutes.
