Okra and Tomatoes

Bacon, onion, and a little hot pepper flavors this tasty okra and tomato dish.


  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh okra, washed, stemmed, sliced about 1/2-inch thick
  • 4 large tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and diced
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • pepper, to taste
  • dash crushed red pepper, or to taste


Fry bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp and fat has been rendered; drain well on paper towels. Crumble bacon and set aside. Add the chopped onions to the skillet; reduce the heat to low. Cook onions for 10 to 15 minutes, until tender, stirring occasionally. Add the sliced okra, tomatoes, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper; stir well and simmer for about 20 minutes, until okra and tomatoes are just tender. To serve, spoon okra into a serving dish and sprinkle with the crumbled bacon. Serves 6.

Unbelievably good!, Member ScotteeM

I never thought my husband would willingly eat okra, but we got about half a pound in our CSA bag this week. I found this recipe and used a tomato and a small onion from our CSA with the okra. It was delicious! My husband loved it, and took the leftovers for lunch the next day.
