Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add okra in a single layer; cook, without stirring, 3 minutes or until charred. Stir. Add onion and garlic; cook 2 minutes or until lightly charred. Add tomato, sugar, and pepper; cook 1 minute or until tomatoes start to break down.

  • Remove pan from heat; stir in butter and remaining ingredients.


  • Charred Okra with Tomatillos: Use 1/2 cup peeled, julienned tomatillo instead of plum tomato. Swap 2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano for the thyme, and substitute 1 teaspoon grated lime rind for lemon rind.
