Okra Stew Recipe

This is a great one (instant) pot recipe that’s fairly easy! Serve it with a side of jasmine rice and enjoy!


1 lb lamb or beef chunks (you can also substitute with ground meat rolled into meatballs as shown in the picture)

14 oz frozen mini okra- usually one bag (the smaller the okra the less slimy they get when cooked!)

3oz tomato paste- about 3 tablespoons

2-3 medium sized garlic cloves

3 cups broth

3 tablespoons of pomegranate concentrate or lemon juice (add more if desired)

1/4 cup coarsely chopped cilantro

a dash of salt, pepper, and allspice

A drizzle of olive oil


You can cook this in any pot, however, the instant pot will just be quicker.

-Set instant pot to sauté and add in a drizzle of olive oil with your meat and a dash of each salt, pepper, and allspice.

-Cook for ten minute or until you get a nice browning on the meat. Add in your frozen okra, stir gently and cook for an additional 5 minutes.

-Add in your tomato paste and garlic and give it another gentle stir.

-Lastly add in your broth, pomegranate concentrate, and cilantro. Cover your instant pot and keep sealed. Cook for 15 minutes on the meat/stew setting.

-Garnish with fresh cilantro and enjoy!
