1/1 Photo of Potsie's White Trash Trinity
Pot Scrubber's Note:
The Cajuns have a "Holy Trinity" of cooking which consists of celery, onion, and bell peppers. Texas White Trash (which I come from a long and distinguished line of)have our own Holy Trinity of cooking consisting of potatoes, onions, and okra. My family has been making this for years and I remember eating it while I was still strapped in a booster chair. If you love fried potatoes- if you love okra- and if you love onions- you will love this dish for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. May be served with ketchup but if you want real authentic White Trash fare- serve smothered in creamy white gravy! You can get me to do some rather unpleasant things if you wave a plate of this at me.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Pour oil into a skillet with a tight fitting lid (preferably cast iron but go with what you have)and then add potatoes, onion, and okra and toss.
- 2Heat your skillet (with all of the ingredients) over medium high heat.
- 3Sprinkle with garlic powder and a generous amount of pepper. Save salt for later(Salting potatoes makes them "sweat". Just like eggplant. You don't want them to do that while trying to brown them -- it will increase your cooking time.).
- 4Cover skillet with a tight fitting lid and cook over a medium high heat until potatoes are steamed soft, stirring about every 5 minutes. Don't use a high heat YET -- you are not trying to brown the potatoes yet just get them soft.
- 5They should be soft in about 15-20 minutes, depending on the size of your cubed potatoes. I like to cube mine relatively small- I think the end result is a better texture. (For me, anyway).
- 6After potatoes are soft, remove the lid (and don't recover anymore) and turn the heat up to brown the potatoes. I usually only turn them two or three times because I like some of them browned and other ones still soft.
- 7When browned to your liking remove from skillet and salt to your taste.
- 8Serve with ketchup if you must but a creamy white gravy is better.
