Stewed Okra & Tomatoes (Winn Dixie Tomato Event)
Tricia @ NoLaMommy.com
Main or Side Dish
1 tbs butter 1 medium onion 1 lb cut okra (Winn Dixie frozen, cut okra works great!) 3-4 medium tomatoes (I used Louisiana creole tomatoes) 2 cloves chopped garlic ½ teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon sugar (every time my grandmother cooked with tomatoes she added sugar to counteract the acidity) Louisiana Hot Sauce (to taste, I usually just put the bottle on the table for anyone who wants an extra kick) Rice (optional) If you are serving this dish with rice, put the rice on first and let it cook while you are preparing the dish. Melt 1 tbs butter in a large sauce pan Add chopped onion and chopped garlic Let it simmer until the onions are clear (4-5 minutes) Add 3-4 chopped tomatoes (I usually put 4 and make sure to add all of the juice from the tomatoes as well.) Add 1lb cut okra Add salt, sugar, and additional seasoning if desired Add ½ cup of water Simmer for 35-45 minutes while stirring occasionally Enjoy!
