Our Tomatoes and Okra are ready!
Don’t worry,this is not slimy. When you add in the tomatoes, the acid breaks down the slime of the okra.
1/2 Pound of GF Bacon
4 Cups Sliced fresh Okra
2 medium Cloves of Garlic (chopped)
1 Small Jalapeno chopped (Optional)
2 Cups cored, peeled and chunked tomatoes ( About 3 medium tomatoes chunked into 1 to 1 ½ inch cubes)
1/2 Teaspoon Salt ( or less if you are watching your salt intake)
I medium skillet fry bacon just until crisp. Remove bacon from grease, to crumble into chunks and reserve for later. Add garlic, jalapeno and sliced okra to grease and fry on medium high heat just until okra is soft and starts to turn brown, stirring so that it cooks evenly. Reduce heat and add tomatoes and salt. Raise heat and let vegetables just come to a simmer. Remove from heat, stir in bacon and serve. Enjoy!
Note: You don’t have to peel the tomatoes. I just like mine peeled.
