Classic country fried okra

What you’ll need:

  • 6 fresh, medium sized okra per person
  • cornmeal
  • salt to taste
  • oil to fry in

Boil the okra until it is tender enough to pierce with a fork without tearing them. Slice into 1/8 – 1/4″ medallion slices and roll in salted cornmeal. Fry in oil heated to 350 degrees until browned. Serve hot.

Cost:
okra – $3.99/lb
cornmeal – $3.12/5 pound bag
Total – $2.31 for 1/2 lb okra (feeds 4)

  1. fried okra is one of my favorite dishes ever. This is the style my grandmother used to make on her farm in NC and it was a treat for me to help her pick the okra fresh that morning. I also like the heavy breaded style of okra too, they are just two different things.

    Man….right now I could go for a plate of fried okra. You found fresh okra this time of the year? Lucky!
