Growing up with Grand Parents who lived off the land in Southern Louisiana, we had a lot of fresh vegetables. Nothing is more comforting in my book than smothered okra and tomatoes.

My Grand Mother always started hers by browning the onions in bacon drippings, but I tried to make mine a little healtier.

I like this dish served as a vegetable side dish or over rice as a main meal. I also like it in my Cajun gumbo, just store a couple of cups into gumbo when it is almost ready to serve and enjoy!

How to Make Smothered Okra & Tomatoes

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large skillet or dutch oven pot, saute onion mixture in Olive Oil until tender.

  3. Cook on low heat until okra is very tender and most of the liquids are gone, about 30 minutes or until desired fondness. I like mine well done and thick.
