    This was great. We left out the tomatoes (hubby is picky), but still loved it. Tasted like "real" okra, but not nearly as bad for you. Delish. Will make again! - 8/17/11

  • I'm looking forward to trying this very soon! I'm going to omit the salt because I use self rising cornmeal. I also suggest boiling frozen okra for 5 minutes and then draining and allowing it to cool completely before cooking it. It will stick to the pan and make a big mess otherwise! - 7/9/08
