Spanish Okra


SPANISH OKRA
I've made this twice in a month. It's so easy, delicious, and totally comfort food. Well, comfort food with a little spice. I love it, my hubby loves it, and I know you're going to love it.

After I make my pot of Spanish Okra I like to serve it over a heap of steamy white rice. Almost like a stir fry. If y'all try it let me know your thoughts.

Ingredients

1 pound ground chuck
1 cup chopped onion
2 cups sliced okra (I used frozen sliced okra )
1 cup chopped tomato
1 cup tomato juice (I used a spicy can of V8 juice) *Hubs hates V8 can't even tell I used it.
1 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
Hot steamed rice

1.) Brown ground chuck and onion in a large skillet, stirring until meat crumbles and is no longer pin; drain.

2.) Add okra; cook 5 minutes, stirring often.

3.) Add tomato and next 3 ingredients; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until okra is tender.

4.) Serve over rice.

This looks so good. I've never seen a recipe (or heard of) Spanish Okra. I'll have to try it.

You're not gonna believe this... I grew up eating gumbo without okra. My dad doesn't like okra in his gumbo so my mom and Mawmaw never added okra to the gumbo. The first time I had gumbo with okra, I thought it was so strange. So funny how we assume the food we ate as a child is the "norm."
