Jazz up the breading mixture with a little Cajun seasoning, if you want spicier fried okra.


  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh okra pods
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons shortening, part bacon drippings if possible


Wash okra; cut off tips and stem ends. Cut pods into 1/4-inch slices. Sprinkle sliced okra with salt and pepper. Combine cornmeal and flour in a wide, shallow bowl; roll okra in mixture. Sauté okra until golden brown.

I grew some Okra in my Earthbox and used this recipe as a guide for cooking it up. The only exception was that I used a milk and egg batter on the Okra before the corn meal. I also used about a tablespoon of Tony Chachere's creole seasoning. It turned out EXCELLENT! I can't wait to harvest some more!
