Cajun Maque Choux

Usually this is sort of like a cross between creamed corn and Mexicorn. I don't really care for creamed corn except maybe in corn pudding or cornbread so did not add the expected cream (it's not missing by accident). But if you want it, go ahead. If the okra is browned properly, it will not be slimy. But don't use frozen or canned okra- only very fresh and preferably small pods.
