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
- 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.
- 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.
