The author says of this recipe: “The Tabasco is the secret ingredient. The okra still has good texture but is softened enough and the flavor is much more like fried okra. Everyone who likes okra and even some that don’t because of the slime really like this dish.”


  • 1 pound fresh coined small okra
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp Tabasco Sauce
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • 1 fresh tomato medium diced
  • 2 cups freshly cooked rice
  • Lightlycooked smoked sausage cut in coins for a taste change
