  • 3-4 tbsp canola oil
  • 12 whole little okra pods
  • 2 lbs pork chops, cubed
  • 2 (6 oz) cans tomato paste
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 2-3 cups water or chicken stock
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Step 1

Heat two tablespoons of oil in a skillet, fry the okra pods on low until they're brown on all sides, and set the okra aside.

Step 2

In the meantime, start cooking down your tomato paste over low to medium heat in a tablespoon or two of oil, stirring often. It needs to brown some, but be careful not to burn it.

Step 3

When you reach this stage, add your pork, onions and bell peppers. Stir well. Add enough water or chicken stock to cover the mixture. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 4

Simmer for about an hour over medium heat, then add the okra pods and cook another 15 to 20 minutes. Serve over hot rice.
