Simple Fried Okra
- 1 lb. sliced okra
- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
- oil, to cover bottom of skillet
- salt and pepper
Slightly beat egg with fork in medium-sized bowl.
Pour okra into bowl and mix until coated well with egg.
Add flour and mix well.
Preheat skillet on medium-high until hot then add enough oil to coat bottom of pan.
Shake off excess flour from okra then carefully add to skillet. Flip over okra every few minutes, watching carefully so it does not burn on the bottom.
