How to Make Bea's Oven Fried Okra
- TIP: I whisked the egg in a medium size bowl. I dropped the okra into the bowl as I sliced it. Once I was done slicing the okra I rolled them around with my hands to coat well. I put about 1 1/2 cups of flour in a plastic grocery bag (I actually use two for a security measure) then added the seasonings. Then I put the okra into the bag and twisted the opening shut and started shaking until the okra was coated with the flour.
- BOILED OKRA:
Wash okra but leave whole with a little stem on end. Place in a saucepan and cover with water. Add salt, black pepper, a little olive oil and about 2 tablespoons of vinegar (that's the secret). Boil til okra has changed colors and is tender. I like boiling mine to the point that they are just beginning to split open. My best friend, Ann's mother, cooked okra this way. I never cared for boiled okra until I ate Ann's mother's okra cooked like this. I think the vinegar makes all the difference.
