Category: Vegetables

 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Okra
  • 1/2 c Vegetable oil
  • 2 ts Salt -- to taste
  • 2 ts Black pepper -- freshly
  • Ground


1) Wash the okra in cold water and drain. Cut it into 1/2-inch slices and
remove the stems. 2) Heat half the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium
heat. Add half te okra and spread it into an even layer with a spatula.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fry, turning the okra with a spoon to cook
evenly, until the okra is tender, crispy, and well browned, about 10
minutes. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining oil and okra and
serve hot.


After washing and draining the okra, cut it crosswise into 1-inch slices.
Beat 3 eggs with a few drops of water in a bowl. Pour some cracker meal
into a second bowl. Dredge the sliced okra first in the cracker meal, then
coat with the beaten egg. Drain well and coat with cracker meal. The okra
is then ready for frying.
