    1 lg yellow onion, peeled and minced
    3 lg cloves garlic, peeled and crushed

    1 2-pound can crushed tomatoes
    juice of 1 lemon
    salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

    Quickly brown the lamb strips in the olive oil. Add the onion and
    garlic and cook until transparent. Add the spices, tomato, and lemon
    juice, and salt and pepper. Simmer until the lamb is tender. Add the
    thawed okra, and cook 5 mintues. This dish is better if cooked a few
    hours ahead and reheated. Lebanese serve over Rice Pilaf (below).
