We love okra and tomatoes, this recipe is a lot like my Mom use to make. The Recipe comes from courtesy Paula Deen.
- Cook bacon slightly; saute onion and garlic with bacon until tender.
- Add tomatoes, chicken base, sugar and pepper; stir well and let simmer for about 20 minutes; adjust seasoning if needed.
- Meanwhile wash okra and remove fuzz, if using fresh okra, cut into pieces; add okra and simmer until okra is done, about 20 more minutes (less if using frozen), serve.
