Easy Okra and Tomatoes (Fresh or Frozen)
Easy Okra and Tomatoes (Fresh or Frozen) is the best Southern recipe for stewed vegetables with bacon seasoned with Creole Seasoning. This dish is quick to make using canned tomatoes.
Cook the bacon in a skillet on medium-high heat. Cook the bacon until crisp and remove the bacon and set aside.
You can drain the fat from the bacon if you wish or leave it. I reserve at least a teaspoon of fat. Add the onions to the pan and saute for 3-4 minutes until fragrant.
Add in the okra, diced tomatoes, and all of the seasonings. Stir.
Reduce the heat to medium-low and cover the pot. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until the okra is soft.
Open the pot and add the cooked bacon. Stir.
Feel free to omit the bacon if you would like a vegetarian dish.
The cook time remains the same for both fresh and frozen okra.
