Loved it! I served it over brown rice, left out the green pepper and added 1 1/2 teaspoons of seasoned salt. I will definitely make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Pretty good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awesome! so good you don't even need rice! Be sure and cook the bacon in a pan that will make it crisp because the pot I used the first time did not fully brown the bacon. Excellent! I make it all the time! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the second time I have made this dish and it is just as good this time as it was before. I added a couple of jalapeno peppers because I had a lot from my garden and they gave it just a little heat. Delicious and easy dish. Thanks Paula item not reviewed by moderator and published

I love Paula and all of her recipes. I grew up on a farm here in the good old U.S.A. and all of her dishes are just like the ones I remember. So, if you want a true southern dish. Paula's recipes are the winners! item not reviewed by moderator and published
far too much dicing. I made it as the recipe says but I used a bouillon cude and this dish still needed alot of salt. it has very little flavor at all and vitually no tomato taste. I dont see why these reviews hail it as the best when clearly the canned okra and tomatoes are far better. needs far more salt then what it calls for and more than a cup of water to keep it from burning in the pan. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Best I've ever tasted. 5-stars all the way. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Being from the south we grew up on fresh vegetables and okra was one of our favorites. This recipe is very much like my mother made for our family of 7 children. Most of the time my mother put in fresh corn and a pinch of sugar. try the corn in this dish sooo good. Thanks Paula item not reviewed by moderator and published
I still have not acquired taste for sauteed okra but love it when you heat up the deep fryer! Watch you "ever" day ... think you would be great in a sitcom! When are you going to open a restaurant in Dallas, TX.? (oops, forgot the question mark in previous review! Christoper item not reviewed by moderator and published
