Here is a Cuban Style 𝐎𝐤𝐫𝐚 𝐒𝐭𝐞𝐰 𝐑𝐞𝐜𝐢𝐩𝐞 with Pork and Plantain, also known as Quimbombó (pronounced keem-bohm-BO) – 𝐐𝐔𝐈𝐌𝐁𝐎𝐌𝐁𝐎 in English means Okra. A vegetable whose origin is heavily disputed, with factions of West African, Ethiopian, and South Asian roots claiming to it. The Quimbombo Cubano is a dish very similar to a Cajun okra gumbo and has its origins in Africa. It is a famous stew in Cuban cuisine, and the slave trade is credited for its introduction to the island nation. The edible green pods of the Quimbombo are an excellent source of minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber.
