This stew is adapted from my mom's down-home Louisiana recipe, and it turns okra-haters into okra-lovers. Guaranteed. —Kaya Mack, Wichita Falls, Texas

This is a great recipe and one that I will make often. The second time I added fresh basil and cilantro. Yummy

Being relatively new to okra, I decided to take the author, Kaya's challenge. I wouldn't consider myself an okra hater, but I've never found it very appealing - until I tried this recipe! Very easy to make, tasty, and filling. I look forward to making it again soon. Thanks!

This is one of the best okra stews that I have ever made or tasted. I did modify it the second time I made by adding a couple of small jalapeno peppers to it in addition to the green peppers for an extra kick.

My husband loves it with corn bread.
