Southern Okra Skillet

Southern Okra Skillet – With A Twist

This Southern Okra Skillet is a twist on okra and tomatoes. I’m from the South so I could eat a whole tub of this! I put in favorite spices.


In addition to the spices, I also put kielbasa sausage in it just for a change.

Please try to use fire-roasted tomatoes. I think they really make a difference in the taste!
