Creole browned okra

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3 pounds Cut okra
1 large Onion; chopped
1 large Tomato; chopped
1 teaspoon Lemon juice
1 teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon Garlic powder
3 tablespoons Vegetable shortening

Place finely cut okra in shortening in heavy pot or skillet. Brown, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Add lemon juice (this prevents roping) and onion. Continue cooking & stirring until mixture has cooked down & is brown. Add tomato, salt & garlic powder. Place cover on pot & steam for 10 minutes. Okra will stick to pot & form a crust. Keep lifting & turning with spatula as it browns. Yields 6-8 servings.
