Levantine Okra Stew

Bamieh is the Arabic word for Okra, and this is what we refer to this dish.

It is a very popular homemade dish in the Levant. Almost everyone in Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria are familiar with it. It can be made vegetarian or with beef cubes. I love it. It is such a comforting dish. We usually eat it with rice.

You can also find a different recipe on my blog for the okra cooked in olive oil. This one is usually eaten with pita bread and is also delicious.

For the full recipe, please visit the following page and let me know if you do give it a go. I am sure you will love it. It is one of my very favorite.
