Boiled Okra

(1 Votes)
20 Min

Enjoy this versatile veggie simply boiled this way all by itself, or add some to your soups and stews to thicken and flavor them up.

What You'll Need

  • 8 cups water
  • 1 pound fresh okra, rinsed and trimmed
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup (½ stick) butter

What to Do

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the water, okra, and salt; bring to a boil over high heat. Allow to boil for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the okra is tender.

  2. Drain then return the okra to the saucepan. Add the butter and cook over low heat until the butter melts and coats the okra, stirring frequently.


These are a favorite when cooked just right, but be careful not to overcook them - that makes 'em get slimy and turn to mush.

this person has quite a bit of water and okra they are cooking so to cut the slime part out of it which i can't stand it's gross,that much water, i would add about 4 tbsps of white vinegar or apple cider will work , i just prefer white for this kind of thing it adds extra flavor to and is a little salty so make sure to taste before adding salt.
