Skillet Okra with Garlic
Servings: 6 people
This skillet okra with garlic is the perfect side for you favorite Southern dish. If using fresh okra, go with the smaller pods. But I'll tell you, even a 1 lb bag of frozen okra works beautifully.
- 1 lb okra fresh or frozen
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 1 tsp adobo all-purpose seasoning I like Goya
- 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
If using fresh okra...cut the ends of the okra and cut into 1/2 inch slices. If using frozen, chopped....just open the bag.
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat.
Add the okra, garlic, adobo seasoning, salt, and black pepper.
Cook, stirring constantly, until tender and lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
