A delicious southern dish. Sometimes I add a little turkey bacon to it for flavor.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wah and clean the okra.
  2. Saute onion until tender.
  3. Add okra, garlic, sauce, and tomatoes.
  4. Stir to blend.
  5. Cover, reduce to a simmer.
  6. Simmer for about an hour, or until okra is nice and tender, stirring as needed. Stir slowly, because the okra will fall apart.
  7. Season to taste.
  8. Optional, sprinkle diced bacon on top before serving.

Followed the recipe-it was AMAZING!
My mom makes this, and it tastes just liker hers, which is quite the compliment. Thank you for the post! p.s. I browned some sausage (and you can add chicken too) and added it to the dish. Delish!
