On Friday, we went to a friend’s house for dinner and toddler girl was going to her first sleepover. At dinner, our wonderful host made some wonderful fried okra. The next day, B decided to make his own version of fried okra and also grill some pork chops.
Frozen okra 1 cup
Corn meal 1 cup
Flour ½ cup
Unsalted butter ½ stick
French’s Fried Onion 1 tablespoon
Salt and pepper season to taste
Garlic powder season to taste
Red pepper or chipotle chile pepper to give it that extra kick
Finely crush the French’s Fried Onion. Mix the flour, corn meal, and crushed French’s Friend Onion together in a bowl. Add seasonings to taste, for an extra kick add red pepper or chipotle chile pepper. Mix all the ingredients together well. Melt the butter in the microwave and once melted pour over slightly thawed okra. Make sure to coat all the okra with butter. Once okra is covered in butter, add the okra to flour/corn mean mixture, getting all the okra covered.
Cook in a cast iron skillet on high heat, turning the okra. Cook until golden brown. This will make a 2 person serving.
For the grill pork chops, I used some Grill Mates pork rub to season the meat before, B put them on the grill.
