Okra, sweet and delish. Stir-fry turns okra golden brown and tender. I served as a side dish with grilled lamb or pork chops. Add rice and you have a complete quick meal.

This is a really great Okra dish. Awesome flavor. Small okra is the best. Mine were a bit bigger so I cut them in half on a sharp diagonal. I kept the heat way up in the wok and got some blackening on some of the pieces. I followed the recipe except I has some chili tepins so I crushed about 6 of them and added to the stir fry. It is really good with a little heat. Use a chopped Serrano or Jalapeno if you don't have tepins. Read More
