Southern Fried Okra
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
Very good fried okra recipe. The buttermilk helps keep the batter on and the garlic seasonings gave it very good flavor.
Good receipe but I eat it with ranch----homemade. Especially like this recipe as it leaves out egg.
I have always loved fried okra. I wonder if you can do the same thing with Brussel sprouts. I think I’ll try it.
I'm giving this a 5-star because it's almost exactly the way I make okra. A few tips I've found work well - after you coat the okra in buttermilk, spoon or pour it into a colander so that some of the buttermilk drains off. The buttermilk will still coat the okra but will be less messy to work with. You can put the flour/cornmeal into a large zip-bag ( I usually use about 1/3 cup of each). Put in a large handful of okra at a time and give it a good shake. Take it out of the bag with a slotted spoon (or just your hand) and put it on a cake rack set atop a plate while you coat the rest. The coating excess will remain in the plate and will keep the oil from getting too dark. One more thing - if you can find a small bottle of "Soul Food Seasoning" in the spice department, grab it up and shake a hearty portion of it into the bag of coating instead of the garlic herb. It's delicious w/ okra.
I want to try this recipe but why can't I put these recipes in my recipe box?
Down here in SC we call it Southern popcorn. A big bowl and a ball game cannot be beat! I usually buy frozen from a local source in my grocery but I'm gonna try this recipe since I grow okra. (I got problems with corn meal but have a trouble finding corn "flour")
My family loves fried okra. This recipe is one of the best ones. We love the texture of the batter.
These were okay, but personally I like a little more flavor on my breading.
Made exactly as directed. The best fried okra I've ever eaten...light, crispy and flavorful!
I've never made okra before but had some fresh from the farmers market and wanted to try it. I didn't have any cornmeal so I used corn muffin mix and I didn't have buttermilk so I made it with whole milk and vinegar. It turned out great! We loved it and this will be my go to recipe for fried okra!
