We thought this was great, but had a bit too much cumin in it for our tastes. I loved everything else about the dish -- the combination of vegetables in a tomato-based broth was great, and by adding a little okra you eliminate the need to thicken the stew with a roux or cornstarch later. Very good, but next time I'll add half the cumin called for. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT4
A pleasant mild stew. It was tasty hot and freshly made, but we have also been enjoying it chilled. I omitted the beef, and used yam in place of potato. Next time I would use more tomatoes (and less water) in place of the tomato paste, and add a few mild hot peppers.
