Simply put, this dish is yummy! It’s also an easy way of breaking the ice with okra for anyone who’s yet to try. I love this recipe because it’s such a great base. It’s delicious over rice or with sausage, shrimp, or pork chops. Okra has great texture, absolutely perfect with the soft tomatoes and peppers.
3 cups okra, chopped into ½-inch pieces
2 cups tomatoes, peeled and chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
4 slices bacon, chopped
1 yellow onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
A pinch of red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper, about a teaspoon each
Add bacon to a large, heated skillet and cook until crisp. Transfer to a towel and add onions to skillet. Sauté until translucent. Add garlic and cook for another minute longer.
Add okra, tomatoes, and peppers and let simmer for 15-20 minutes. Finish with bacon and pepper flakes and serve.
