A great Southern okra dish that allegedly comes from the heart of Acadiana. This vegetable dish is heavy enough to serve as a main dish and makes one pine for the fiddles and chicory coffee.

  • Stir in okra, tomatoes, andouille sausage, and Creole seasoning; cover and cook over medium heat until the okra has lost all of its slippery texture, at least 45 minutes.

Good southern recipe! Here's a tip I found on another site to avoid the sliminess that okra produces: Soak your okra in enough cold water to cover it then squeeze in the juice of one lime and let your okra sit for 10 to 15 minutes before you cook it. Best tip I've read plus it actually works! Read More

A version of this has long been a family favorite. If you don't have the sausage brown 1/2 to 1 lb of ground beef and add it along with 1-2 cups of cooked elbow macaroni. It will become an entire dish even without the meat. Read More

I left out the sausage (because I didn't have any) and it came out very good. I can tell the sausage would make it perfect. Read More

Simply SPECTACULAR!! I made it by the recipe to a T only adding a jalapeno because I like them and had some on hand. Will add some chicken next time. I seasoned with CREOLE SEASONING BLEND by Joslyn from this site. This is a well-balanced and delicious combination and a great one-dish meal. Read More

Yumm A This is a great recipe to use up those garden veggies! I cut the recipe in half because there's only 2 of us. I added a couple of jalepenos and 1/2 of water plus all listed ingredients in a crockpot and let it simmer for a few hours. Thank you wasabinoir! PS: make some cornbread to go along with it!!

This was great! We had never tried okra before but had picked up some fresh ears of corn and okra from the local produce stand. I only had 1/2 the amount of okra called for and no sausage but it was still delicious. In place of the sausage we just substituted left over steak from last night's dinner. I'm sure it is fantastic with the sausage but it was really great with steak. Husband kids and myself all had second helpings! I'll definitely be making this again although next time I'll plan ahead and get all the ingredients. Read More

I made this without the sausage due to allergies. This is a wonderful side dish. Okra onions and corn were fresh from my garden! The tomatoes were also homegrown I canned them whole a few weeks ago and the fresh flavors were amazing. Thanks for the wonderful fresh recipe! Read More
