Stewed Okra and Tomatoes

Total Time

I knew I had an okra recipe somewhere. Felt obligated to post it for the okra fanatics out there. Have not done this for a long time. I must try it again soon.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook onion in butter in saucepan until lightly browned.
  2. Add remaining ingredients.
  3. Cook until okra is tender and mixture thickens (about 15 minutes).
  4. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.

A comfort food from the deep south. If using fresh ingredients, it's 2 cups sliced okra and 2 cups sliced tomatoes.

This was a yummy, easy, and nonslimy way to prepare okra that is so much better for you than frying! I only used 1 T butter and it worked out just fine. I do think this serves closer to 4 as a hearty side dish than 6. Thanks for posting!

I like okra but husband only eats it fried but he ate this and said it was pretty good. It was a quick and easy dish. I fried my okra a little bit with the onion before I added the tomatoes so the okra wouldn't have a slimy texture. Thanks Tebo. Bullwinkle
