How To Make bea's grilled or oven broiled okra

  • 1

  • 2

    GRILL METHOD: Place individual okra directly onto grill grate and cook on low temp (about 350) for approximately 15 minutes or until desired doneness, turning occasionally. We like ours a little charred. NOTE: My son prefers to slice the okra then puts it in a ziplock bag with the oil and seasonings and then uses a grill basket to grill them.

    OVEN METHOD: I also thinly slice the okra, place it in a bowl, sprinkle on the seasonings and drizzle on the olive oil. Then transfer onto a foil-lined cookie sheet or baking pan and broil until the doneness you like. I love the pieces that are a bit charred like you see in the photo.
