  • Rinse okra in a colander under hot water.
  • (Rinsing okra gives it a cleaner taste and texture.) Heat oil in a 10-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then sauté onion, stirring until golden, about 3 minutes.
  • Add tomatoes (including juice) and chile and boil, stirring until tomatoes are softened and liquid is reduced by half, 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Add okra and cook, gently stirring, until okra is tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in salt and pepper and discard chile.

    I used 3 jalapeno peppers and used Rotel instead of diced tomatoes. Also added a small can of the Rotel sauce for extra sauce and also used lemon pepper instead of regular pepper. It was delicious!

    Very tasty recipe - Neat trick to put the whole hot pepper in with just pricks - It gives just enough heat. I used fresh tomatoes and a bit of tomato juice (I had surplus on hand). I used fresh Okra and giving it a rinse in hot water does give it a cleaner taste. Watch your cooking time. I tasted it at 5 minutes and it was perfect but it had to sit another 2 minutes (meat was n't quite done) and it was still very good but just tad over cooked Thanks Barb for another lovely recipe
