Stewed Okra

Kitchen Tested
  • Yield 8 servings

You can find frozen sliced okra in the grocery store if you want to take a shortcut or if okra is not in season.


2 large onions, chopped
2 pounds fresh okra, trimmed and sliced
1 (10-ounce) can diced tomaotes and green chilies
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon sugar


  1. Saute onion over medium heat until tender, about 4 minutes. Toss in okra, making sure to stir occasionally.  Cook for an additional 9-10 minutes, or until okra no longer has a stringy texture.
  2. Combine with tomatoes, salt and pepper, and sugar. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes, until okra is tender.
