Very interesting recipe. I used less bacon and cooked the onion in olive oil to make this a little lighter. Some tips to avoid okra getting slimy: 1)Sprinkle okra with vinegar and salt and let it stand for a couple of hours or even up to a day. Rince well before using. Or 2)place okra in a non-stick pan and cook it alone in high temperature for a few minutes (until it starts changing colour). Remove from hit and add it to the rest of the incredients.
A great change of pace. The flavors blend well. The wife and I really liked this recipe. I followed the directions exactly. It came out perfect. I diced the bacon before I fried it. That saved some time. The next time I will add some tomatoes and some garlic. Thanks posting this recipe.
I had never made anything with oakra but loved it. It thought it might be a little bland so I added fresh minced garlic and cooked it with the onion. I also added a can of diced tomatoes salt and pepper. My Mother-in-law thought it was delicious!!! I will definately make it again maybe with more tomatoes and basmati rice. I also cooked mine a little longer...different and yummy!
I made this for Thanksgiving -- a group of over 20. They all said by far that this was the best side dish at the table. I was really impressed I am going to use this recipe and pass it on. It is going to become part of our tradition.
Wow I was really surprised at how bland this dish turned out. I guess it was my own fault since I made two changes to the recipes - I used no-salt bouillon water instead of broth and a 1/4lb of bacon instead of a 1lb. A pound of bacon is just too much cholesterol in ANY recipe. So yeah I did change the recipe but if salt and fat are the only things making this recipe taste good then why bother? I won't make this recipe again. I can't think how to fix it without making it a calorie and salt nightmare. Update: This dish is REALLY bad as leftovers. The flavors do not develop well. Nope won't be making this again ever.
