Okra and Tomatoes
4 slices bacon ( I use Turkey Bacon), diced into small pieces
1 small onion, peeled and chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups fresh tomatoes, chopped
1/2 Cup Chicken broth
1 tbsp sugar
2 Cups fresh okra, cut into 1 inch pieces
Pepper to taste
Cook bacon slightly. Saute onion and garlic with bacon until tender. Add tomatoes, chicken broth, sugar and pepper. Stir well and let simmer for about 20 minutes. Adjust seasoning to your liking. While that is simmering wash okra and remove fuzz, I just use a damp cloth and gently rub the okra, and cut into pieces. Add the okra and simmer until okra is tender, about 20 minutes.
Serve over rice, noodles or whatever you have on hand.
Look at those fresh tomatoes, that evening I used big boys and grape tomatoes.
The star of the meal.
Letting the onion, bacon and garlic get to know each other.
