The Sisterhood of Southern Okra

Years ago, one of my sisters perfected a Southern Okra dish. Prepare this recipe using garden-fresh produce.

Sister’s Southern Okra

4 tablespoons canola oil

1 1/2 cups saltine cracker crumbs

3 eggs

1/4 cup lowfat milk

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

dash of chile powder

2 cups sliced fresh okra (frozen really doesn’t compare)

Mix dry ingredients.  Set aside.  Lightly beat eggs and milk in shallow dish and set aside. In a frying pan, heat oil.  Dredge okra in egg mixture, dried cracker mixture, and again in egg mixture. Place okra in frying pan.  Saute until golden.  Serve immediately.

  1. This “Southern” way of cooking Okra is to die for! Anyone that says they don’t like okra, need to try the best way to cook it and that is “Sister’s Southern Okra” recipe…my teacher was a friend from Brownsville, TX…Thanks, Brodie!

  2. Brownsville’s favorite sister! Here’s to Sister Brodie’s Southern Okra.
