Okra is a traditional Southern favorite with excellent health benefits. If cooked improperly, it can be not super tasty, but when cooked properly, it brings a unique delicate, nutty flavor with some spice hints. This recipe gives the vegetable a quick saute in bacon grease, and then combines the vegetable with other Cajun flavors to make a delicious side dish to serve with any Cajun or Creole dish like jambalaya, blackened catfish, or Po’boy sandwiches.
