Recipe Ingredients for Greek Braised Okra

1 lb okra, cut into 2 inch pieces
1 cup distilled vinegar (for soaking)
1 large onion chopped
3 medium tomatoes, chopped, seeds & skins removed
1/3 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tbsp parsley, fresh, chopped

Recipe Directions for Greek Braised Okra

  1. In a large bowl place the okra with the vinegar and fill with water. Allow to soak for at least 15 minutes. (this helps get rid of the sliminess)

  2. Wash and drain the okra.

  3. In a pot sweat the onions in the olive oil until translucent, and stir in the tomatoes.

  4. When the tomatoes have begun releasing some juices add the okra and sautee.

  5. Season with salt/pepper and parsley and add 1 cup of water.

  6. Cover and simmer for 1/2 hour or until okras are soft. This can be done either on the stove top or in the oven.

  7. Be very careful and stir gently as vigorous prodding will mush up the okra.
