Personal Notes:
Stewed okra and tomatoes has been a long-time family recipe. Besides being used in gumbos, okra goes well with corn and many other fresh garden vegetables such as crowder peas, purple hull peas and butter beans.

This one skillet okra dish taste wonderful on its own as a vegetable side dish. When shrimps are added, it becomes a Louisiana favorite main dish.
