Vickie's Southern Fried Okra
One of Gary's favorite southern foods is fried okra. He says it's like eating popcorn and you just can't get enough of it. I make it for him about three times a year. For his birthday and special holidays.
  • 1 to 2 cups of fresh or frozen okra (thawed)
  • ½ cup Flour
  • ½ cup Corn Meal
  • 1 tspn salt
  • 1 tspn pepper
  • ½ stick of butter or margarine
  • Combine flour, corn meal, salt and pepper in a gallon size zip lock bag. Close and shake to mix ingredients.
  • Prepare the okra:
    • If you're using fresh okra, wash it and cut into ½ inch slices. Don't dry it, allow it to stay wet.
    • If you're using frozen okra, drain any excess water from the vegetable.
  • Place the wet okra into the zip lock bag. Close and shake well to fully coat the vegetables with the flour mix. Place in the fridge for about 15 minutes. Then remove and shake the mixture again. Repeat this for about 1 hour, replacing the closed bag back into the fridge.
  • When ready, melt the butter in a medium sized skillet until it's bubbling.
  • Retrieve the zip lock bag from the fridge and open. Using your hand, lift the okra out of the flour, gently shaking your hand inside the bag to remove excess flour.
  • Place the okra in the melted butter and saute until covering is golden brown, or to desired crispness.
  • Remove okra from the skillet and serve.
  • You can use any desired amount of salt/pepper. What's provided here is just a guideline.
  • Also consider adding a small ½ tblspn of onion powder to add an additional flavor to the mix.
Serving Instructions:
  • Serve hot.
