Saute the onions, garlic and chopped hot pepper in the oil, combine with the seasonings, canned tomatoes, whole hot pepper, and peanut stock, and simmer for 20 minutes.
Add the okra and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the okra are tender and firm.
Recheck the seasonings and adjust if necessary. Remove the whole hot pepper and serve over rice.
