Country fried okra

I have been collecting okra daily from my seven okra plants, so I thought I would try my hand at fried okra. It may not be the healthiest of foods, but this goes under the serious comfort foods for me!

I have such found memories of eating fried okra at my grandma's house. She would fry up a huge pile for everyone, along with fried squash, mashed potatoes, homegrown sliced tomatoes, green beans, and lots of gravy. 

Anyway, It turns out it is easy!

And it was quick; like under 20mins quick. :)

Country Fried Okra

  • 1 cup corn meal
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced fresh okra
  • Oil for frying

  1. Beat egg and add sliced okra and set aside for about 5 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, measure and season cornmeal in medium bowl.
  3. Heat about a half inch of oil in cast iron skillet.
  4. Coat okra in cornmeal and shake off excess. Working in batches, add an even layer of okra to the skillet. Do not overfill.
  5. Stir occasionally until evenly brown. About 1 to 2 mins.
  6. Remove from skillet and place on plate lined with a clean towel.
  7. Enjoy!
