Excellent side dish. The acid from the tomatoes keeps the okra from getting slimy.

How to Make Okra with Tomatoes


  1. Trim the stems off the okra and slice in half lengthwise. Garlic and okra prepped, I took the photo before I had the onion prepped.
  2. Heat the oil in a large non stick pan, when hot, add the garlic and stir fry until fragrant, 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add the okra and onion and season with salt and pepper as desired. Cook stirring often until the okra is tender and bright green, about 10-12 minutes.
  4. Add the tomatoes, oyster sauce, and mushroom sauce and cook until tender and nearly bursting, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in a pinch of chicken stock powder and taste, adjust with oyster or mushroom sauce.
  5. Serve as a side dish with any meal.
