Simple Sweet and Sour Okra Cooking Recipes

Sweet and Sour Okra

May Louisiana grandmother always eat her boiled okra hot, with a tangy vinaigrette dressing drizzled over it. This dish gives much the same flavor. She liked to have hers with smothered pork chops., and that would be a good partner for this, but I also think this preparation goes extremely well with fish, baked, grilled, or breaded and pan fried. Also, it is fast and simple cooking recipes.

Makes about 6 servings

  • 3 tablespoons mild vegetable oil, preferably peanut

  • 1 pound smallest okra, stems trimmed to about 1/8 inch

  • cup water

  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  1. Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet or wok over medium heat.

  3. Add the water and vinegar and simmer, covered, until the okra is quite tender but not soft, 10 to 12 minutes.

  4. Stir in the sugar and tarragon and boil the mixture hard until it reduces to about cup, 1 to 2 minutes.
