Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 7 minutes
Total Time 12 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 Pound (16 oz bag) Frozen Slice Okra
  • 3 Slices Thick Cut Bacon Julienned
  • 2 Cloves Garlic Minced
  • 1 Tsp Bragg Sprinkle Herb & Spice Seasoning
  • Freshly Ground Pepper
  • 3 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar

Instructions

  1. Heat a saute pan on medium-high heat.  Saute bacon until fat is rendered and bacon is just beginning to get crispy.  Add Okra and season with Herb & Spice Seasoning and Freshly Ground Pepper.  Stir occasionally.  Once the okra begins to soften and thaw (about 2 mins), reduce the heat to medium and then fold in garlic.  At this point, watch the pan closely so the garlic does not burn, stirring constantly.

  2. Once the okra is fork tender but still has crunch (about 1-2 mins more), turn the heat to high and add apple cider vinegar deglazing the pan.  Let the vinegar reduce until no liquid remains (about 1 mins) stirring constantly.  Once the liquid has fully evaporated, remove from heat.  Taste and adjust the seasoning according to your taste.  Serve and ENJOY!
