    2       tb           Pure olive oil
    1                    Large onion, minced
    1                    Clove garlic, minced
    1       lb           Boneless shell steak, cut
                         -into 1-inch cubes
    2                    Medium-size ripe tomatoes,
                         -peeled, seeded, and
                         -coarsely chopped
                         Salt & black pepper to taste
    2                    Preserved malagueta peppers,
                         -minced, or to taste
    1       lb           Okra pods, topped, tailed,
                         -and sliced into rounds
 
   Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium
   heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring,
   until they are soft. Add the meat and cook, stirring
   occasionally to cook all sides, until it is browned.
   Add the tomatoes and seasonings. Cover, reduce the
   heat to low, and cook until the meat is cooked to the
   desired doneness and there is a reddish sauce, 7 to 10
   minutes. Meanwhile, blanch the okra by placing it in a
   saucepan of boiling salted water and cooking it for 3
   to 5 minutes. Drain the okra and add it to the meat.
   Cook for an additional 5 minutes. Serve hot with Angu
   or white rice.
