Fried Okra and Green Tomatoes

I give this recipe 5 stars! It will serve 4 - 6, unless you're like me and I could eat the whole pan myself!
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Eating Time: seconds!

And as a bonus you could watch the movie Fried Green Tomatoes, with your girlfriends while you enjoy this wonderful southern dish.


Fresh Okra, sliced
Fresh green tomatoes, sliced
Fresh sweet onions sliced
Salt and pepper to taste
Canola oil

Prepare vegetables by washing, slicing and set aside. Place generous amount of flour in gallon sized Ziploc bag. Add salt and pepper to taste. Place vegetables in bag and close. Shake until all are well coated.

Add oil to heavy duty fry pan (cast iron works best) until it is 1/4 inch thick. Heat until it begins to smoke - watching carefully. Add vegetables and allow to fry for about 20 minutes or until starting to brown - do not stir. Flip vegetables over and allow to fry for another 15 to 20 minutes watching so it doesn't burn.

Remove from pan on cookie sheet lined with paper towels. Serve warm and enjoy every bite!
