The whole family enjoyed this. From the okra haters to the okra lovers. And not too hard to put together

This was very good and it was enjoyed by even my "cautious" vegetable eater, my son. I think next time I will omit the sugar as I didn't use fresh okra, had to use frozen. This was similar to what my mom used to fix with fresh okra. Thanks, Brenda.

I loved this dish! I added some Cayenne, used sausage instead of the bacon, with a few dashes of smoke flavoring and added brown rice because I wanted to stretch the recipe for a family reunion! Excellent flavor and will be making this again!

Absolutely delish. I used smoked sausage instead of bacon. Wow, I can eat this everyday. Thank you for showing me how to like Okra Barb!!

This is the best okra and tomatoes my family has had! There isn't much to it, but it's the perfect combination for a really hearty side dish. I use pre-cooked bacon so there isn't a lot of fat in it, but it still gets the flavor of the bacon. Sometimes it needs a little more liquid so I add a can of tomato juice or sauce if I have it.

Made this weekend for our Derby Dinner party and it was the hit of the meal, even with frozen okra! Slight variation: sauteed the onion/garlic then added one jar of Hormel real bacon pieces to the tomato mix. MUCH easier, same bacon flavor! Instead of simmering the tomato mix and adding okra later, I put the frozen okra right on top of the tomatoes and let the heat from them steam the okra. The okra stayed crisp and the flavor was great! Guests had seconds and raved. Thanks!

This was delicious! The only thing I did differently was that I used sausage instead of bacon (started making the recipe and then realized the bacon I had was going bad). The sausage worked great though. I made this as a side dish with brown rice. This was oh so good!

Simple recipe. Great flavor. I replaced the chicken base with ham base to give it a little more complex flavor. Don't forget to add the Tabasco!
