Okrahoma Stir Fry - an Okra Recipe That Uses Stir Fry Cooking

User Rating 4 Star Rating (1 Review)

Fusion cooking at its best - the sweet flavor of okra works well in this stir fry recipe posted on our forum by "Uncle Todd"

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound boneless chicken, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 red bell pepper , cut into cubes
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, cut into cubes
  • Marinade:
  • Soy sauce, as needed
  • Minced ginger, as needed
  • Splash of balsamic vinegar
  • Remaining Ingredients:
  • 1 pound fresh okra pods
  • Curry Powder, to taste

Preparation:

Marinate the chicken and peppers in the soy sauce, minced ginger, and balsamic vinegar.
Cut the heads and tails off the okra and cut into 1/4 inch rounds. Dump them in a bowl and don't season them!
Stir-fry the chicken until about 2/3 done, pull and save. Add oil, then the okra.
The battle is on. Stir like crazy.
Your goal is little green things that look like they are trying to be a nice golden brown. If you cook the okra just right, it is great. Under or over-cook it, it is great.
Throw in the chicken, stir like crazy. Add the peppers.
Toss in about a teaspoon of curry powder for fun. Serve over rice or with mashed potatoes.

This is a very easy and delicious recipe. It's a new and different way to use okra. Marinating the bell pepper along with the chicken gives the dish a very good flavor. I thought perhaps the okra would HAVE to be seasoned, but there is just enough seasoning without any salt! Since I did not have fresh okra at the time, I used frozen okra that had been defrosted---works just as well.
