Okra and Tomatos





I love okra - so I found this recipe and tried it out and it was really good! It makes a great side!

Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon, diced into small pieces
  • 1 small onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon chicken base (I didn't have this so just used a little chicken stock)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 cups fresh okra, cut into 1-inch pieces (may use frozen, if fresh not available)
  • Fresh ground black pepper

Directions

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 and cut into pieces. Add the okra and simmer until okra is done, about 20 more minutes (less if using frozen okra.)

  1. This looks so yummy! I would substitute the sugar. Is Okra easy to find in the grocery stores?
