I'm not sure what happened here - I've made quite a few Okra recipes with good results, but this one resulted in a product that was too tough to eat and little flavor.

This was so easy, but a little bland. Next time I may use some extra seasoning, but it was good as-is. My mother loves okra and I'm going to make this for her up-coming visit. Thanks!
