Comment of the Day: Fried Okra, Texan Style
"A much easier way to make it though (and this is the way that most Texas mothers and grandmothers that I know cook it), is to merely toss the sliced okra in a bowl with cornmeal and salt, and then throw it in a pan with hot oil. Fry it until the cornmeal is golden, and remove the okra to a plate covered in some paper towels in order to let it drain. You'll have some delicious, crispy, salty, wonderful fried okra to show for not very much effort at all!" —misplacedtexan, on "Cook the Book: Fried Okra"
