How to make it

  • Instructions
  • Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and cut the bacon into the skillet. Cook until crisp, remove the bacon and set aside, leaving the drippings in the skillet. Reduce heat to medium and add the onion, cooking about 5 minutes until soft. Add the garlic and sliced okra (if frozen you do not need to thaw) to the skillet and stir fry, turning occasionally, for about 5 minutes.
  • Add in the tomatoes and Rotel with all the juices, sugar, salt, pepper, Cajun seasoning. Give it a stir, bring to a boil, reduce to a low simmer, cover and let cook for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until veggies are tender. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed; stir in bacon. Serve immediately. Very good as a side dish, or as a main course served over rice.

    Thanks, Elgourmand. This is really a Louisiana Classic and also it can be made into several other recipes, Like a Gumbo, soup and several seafood dishes.

    I have seen this mixture, minus the bacon canned and /or frozen.
    I posted 2 recipes for the Maque Choux on the same page, if you have any problems let me know. Thanks

    I like okra and don't have a recipe. This looks good. No okra at the moment but we get it about four times a year. Next time it's in, you're up. Thanks Twill.
