Use fresh corn and okra in this Maque Choux dish for best results. If you don't like spicy food you can easily sub the hot sausage for a milder version to fit your tastes.
1/4 pound spicy smoked sausage, diced
1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 cups fresh corn kernels
1 cup sliced fresh okra
1 cup peeled, seeded, and diced tomato (1/2 lb.)
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
How to Make It
Sauté sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat 3 minutes or until browned. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic, and sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Add corn, okra, and tomato; cook, stirring often, 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Note: We tested with Conecuh Original Spicy and Hot Smoked Sausage.
I made this a month ago and my boyfriend loved it! He loved the fact that it wasn't slimy like typical Okra dishes. I made it again tonight per his request. I highly recommend using fresh corn kernels and not frozen or canned. I did not use the sausage, instead, I used half a fresh jalapeno sliced like another reader used. Next time, I'll try it with the sausage. This was a great side paring for a barbecue.
I LOVED this recipe...although one or two things were switched up a bit. Instead of sausage I used pork, as it was the only thing in my freezer at the time. AMAZING! Served with roasted potatoes and purple hull peas. My husband loved it...and he's a picky eater, so I know it was good.
Excellent! The best okra, corn & tomatoe recipe that I've ever made. This was not slimy at all. Served with smothered, skinless chicken thighs and white rice. Note: don't sub fresh corn & okra for frozen or canned.
Had a luncheon for some friends and they thought that it was the best dish on the table. Used olive oil to saute my sausage and the "spicyness" was just right. Served it with squash and onions, butter beans, turkey,cornbread, and freshly squeezed lemonade. Topped it off with blackberry cobbler, it was GREAT!
