Easy Fried Okra

This Pan Fried Okra Recipe is exactly the way it was always done in my home growing up.  So I may be a little bios when it comes to taste and flavor, because it’s a recipe I’ve grown to love.  I say that because the breading in this recipe is very light and flaky.  It’s not a batter that’s thick and really holds on to the Okra and that’s the way I like it.  If it’s not how you prefer your Okra, then the alternatives are still listed below, so no worries.  Everyone is happy because the seasoning and flavor is still very present no matter how you like it.  Also, it wouldn’t hurt to throw in a few tbsp of Corn Meal if you’d like.

Pan Fried Okra Ingredients:

1 lbs Okra
Season Salt, shake
Black Pepper, shake
Cayenne, light shake
1 cup Flour
1/3 cup Butter Milk (Optional)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Oil for Frying.

Season The Okra first then cover with flour, 1/4 cup at a time then stir until the flour is gone and the Okra is full coated. If you want a thicker layer of batter you need to apply the butter Milk first, then add the flour. In a hot pan on Medium Heat, add enough oil to coat the whole bottom, then add the Okra and spread out evenly. Turn up the Heat immediately to Medium High and Cook for 1 to 2 minutes before tossing, then cook Okra too a Golden brown on all sides, then serve.
