We tried growing it last year, and got the seeds up, but in the place we planted them nothing seems to grow well. We still have some seeds I think, but we don't really know what we are doing. Maybe we should try to start some seeds soon. Okra, Pork & Tomato Gravy
When my grandma would make this dish, my sister & brother & I would clean the pot, it was that awesome. Of course you have to be an Okra lover.
oil 12 whole little okra pods 2 pounds pork, cut up 2 cans tomato paste 1 large onion, cut up 1 bell pepper, cut up water or chicken stock salt to taste pepper to taste
Directions Heat a little oil in skillet, fry the okra pods on low until brown on all sides. In the meantime, start cooking down your tomato paste in a little oil, stirring often. It needs to brown some, but be careful not to burn it. When you reach this stage, add your meat, onions and bell peppers. Stir well.
Add water or chicken stock to cover meat. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for about an hour, then add the okra pods and cook another 15 to 20 minutes. Serve over hot rice.

julieann: A long while back you posted a recipe for Easy Sauce by Reg and Jack Absalom, I just wanted to say thank you so much, and to mention that it is pretty good for making tomato relish. I am an Aussie living in the USA. No easy access to Ezy Sauce.JulieAnn
