Stewed Okra

I came up with this recipe one summer when I had lots of okra and tomatoes. Everyone really enjoyed it and said how delicious it was. Friends always ask me when I’m going to cook my tomato and okra dish. Sometimes I’ll serve it over rice.

    I made this recently for a country potluck. It was very good and enjoyed by all. I added a splash of worcestershire sauce for added flavor!

    Doubled okra,used a can of hot Rotel instead of tomatoes, and used cajun seasoning instead of salt. Spicy but simple dish.

    My ancestors were making this before I was born and I'm 54. I don't think a cup of okra is enough.

    this looks like one I might be able to add corn to and come up with another yummy one. I love the combination of corn, tomatoes, and okra together.
