Southern Cooking At Its Best
Cooking is a passion of mine and southern cooking is what I'm good at. Bring on the green tomatoes, breaded pork-chops, fried chicken, biscuits and gravy, red hots, hash-browns, cornbread and turnip greens because those are the things I know how to cook. Most recently I've made a lot of okra and tomato dishes. I really should have a garden of my own but local produce stands provide all I need for now.
I'm not much for the slime so this is how I cook my okra and tomatoes:
Put a skillet on the burner and let it heat up, add about 3T of olive oil,
Mince two whole garlic cloves and add to heated oil
Wash and cut ends off of about three cups of fresh okra, slice width ways and add to mixture
Brown garlic and okra well
Dice two garden grown tomatoes and add to the mix- don't forget the juice!
Stir ingredients together and cook until tomatoes cook down.
I serve mine over brown rice or eat as a side dish.
