Cooking OKRA

I like vegetable, any kind of vegetables. Mostly I eat them raw and as salad.
 Talking about favorite vegetable, Okra is in season now days. We can find them everywhere in cheap price. 
If you like this Okra too just follow my tips: find fresh okra with firm (not soft) pod, it's good one. 
Then try my okra recipe for good menu on your dinner table (^,^).
 ± 300 g okra pods
 ± 100 g beef, sliced ​​lengthwise (can be skipped if you want vegetarian version)
 1 medium onion, finely chopped
 2 ~ 3 cloves garlic, smashed and finely chopped
 1 medium tomato, peeled and finely chopped
 1 teaspoon ground red pepper / chilli powder
 2 ~ 3 tablespoons lemon juice of ½ medium lemon
 ½ tsp sugar
 2 tsp salt or to taste
 ¾~1 cup hot water (or broth)
 Enough Corn/ canola oil for sauteing

1) Leave the okra whole without cut. If you cut them the mucilage will be out from them and make it slime. Wash the okra with salt water and rinse with clean water. Drain.
2) Heat enough cooking oil in a pan, saute the meat until cooked and tender. Stir in onion and garlic, saute until fragrant and transparent. Combine tomatoes and paprika powder, mix well. Mix in okra, sugar and salt, stir well.
3) Pour with ¾~1 cup water (broth) and lemon juice, stir and continue cooking over medium heat about 20 minutes or until okra is rather soft.

Serve warm.
