1 kg. of stewing veal or beef, cut into large chunks
1lb. of okra (fresh or frozen), stems removed
(click here to read how to properlytrim okra)
3 medium onions, sliced
1/2 cup of parsley, chopped
1/2 cup of plum tomatoes, pureed 4-5 cloves of garlic, sliced
8-9 allspice berries
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
- Using your pressure cooker, place your veal inside with a little salt and cover with enough water to just cover the meat. Turn the heat to high and when your cooker starts whistling and the seal has been made, reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 20 minutes. Take the pressure cooker off the heat and safely release the pressure.
- In a separate large pot, add your olive oil, sliced onions and simmer for 10 minutes over medium heat.
- Add your tomato puree, then the okra, parsley, allspice, garlic and top with the veal. Now pour enough of the veal stock from the pressure cooker to just cover all the ingredients in your pot.
- Bring to a boil, taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Cover, reduce heat to medium and simmer for 1 hour. Taste for seasoning and let stand for 15 minutes (the okra will thicken the sauce).
- Serve with some feta cheese, crusty bread and mop-up!
