Okra, Sausage, and Tomato Stew

Scroll down to content

IMG_E3178I love having some fresh, local okra available and trying to convince people (that I really do love) that they will like okra and that it’s not slimy! Luckily, this recipe succeeded with my boyfriend.

View from my Parent’s balcony, eating the okra dish!

One of the things I love about this recipe is that it can be served in a variety of ways. You can have it over rice, as is, freeze it, or cook up some shrimp with it.  (It’s also basically throwing it in a pot and letting it simmer until cooked through.)

When it’s a little colder, this will help warm you right up.

Dad, enjoying the dish… (shh – He doesn’t know I snuck this picture.)


1 lb cooked sausage (you can use any you like: andouille, smoked, hot Italian, etc.) crumbled or diced.

Fresh cut Okra

1 large white onion, diced 
1 lb fresh okra, sliced into 1 cm pieces
2 cans tomatoes (I recommend fire-roasted), undrained
1 can of corn, drained
1 cup dry white wine
½ tsp cayenne pepper
salt to taste

Optional ingredients to finish: Rice, bread, etc.

In a large stock pot, saute onions and sausage. (If using raw sausage, make sure it’s cooked through. If using cooked sausage, make sure it’s lightly browned.) IMG_E3154


Add okra, tomatoes, corn, wine and cayenne.  IMG_E3162

Bring to a boil; cover and reduce heat to a simmer.  Cook for approximately 10 minutes, or until okra is cooked through. 




Serve warm (over rice, if you choose.)



(Note: This does freeze well. I froze and reheated later with some freshly cooked shrimp.)
