Fried Okra

Fried Okra
From: swampbear

Two pounds of okra cut into pieces
1 small onion chopped fine
1 medium or two small green tomatoes chopped fine
Salt and pepper to taste
Flour and, if desired a little corn meal
1 clove of garlic chopped fine
1 banana pepper seeded and chopped fine and/or 1 jalapeno pepper seeded and chopped fine
Oil for frying

Mix all ingredients well. Mixture may be a little ooey gooey but that's fine. Fry in small batches, covering the bottom of a hot skillet with oil. Drain well. The best fried okra EVAH!

NOTE: I like using half of a banana pepper and half of a jalapeno pepper personally. Gives it a little kick. The garlic is optional but, hey, is there anything such as too much garlic?
