Directions

  1. Cook the onions in the oil until tender.
  2. Add the tomatoes, garlic and spice mix; simmer about 5-8 minutes to blend the flavors.
  3. Wait till the last minute to first wash, then dry and cut the okra (about 1/4 inch) to help prevent bleeding.
  4. Add the okra and peppers to the pot, cover and simmer until the okra is tender.
  5. For a main dish, add smoked sausage, or cubed, cooked chicken or pork and serve over rice.
  6. This is also excellent with black beans mixed in!

Excellent okra recipe! I added black beans, served it over plain cous-cous and it was a great hit! Thank you Chief Jack! Yummy!

I'm not from the south but this dish makes me wonder else I've been missing! I made it at the fire station with hot smoked sausage and served it over brown rice. Every guy on our engine company went back for thirds. Definitely a hit!

This was really good - I think I'll eat it as a main dish next time!
