Corn And Okra Skillet

Our okra was one of the veggies we had planted this year and we never got one taste of it after Debbie! All the okra in the stores looked horrid and I refused to buy it, so no fresh okra for us until possibly this fall if we manage to dry out enough to plant. This recipe is a nice combo of veggies and very flavorful.

I wish these were ours!

Corn And Okra Skillet
  • 1 small sweet onion, cut in strips
  • 1 medium bell pepper, cut in strips
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh corn cut off the cob
  • 1 cup fresh okra, cut in ½-inch pieces
  • 1 beef bouillon cube
  • ½ cup boiling water
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ½ teas salt
  • Dash of garlic salt and white pepper
  1. Dissolve bouillon in the boiling water and set aside.
  2. Melt butter in a skillet and cook onions and peppers over low heat until partly softened.
  3. Add all ingredients to the skillet, cover tightly and simmer, stirring several times for 5-10 minutes or until okra and corn are tender.


Hope you enjoy!

Fresher Homemade Egg Rolls
I prefer this version with fresh veggies and some canned!


1/2 cup oyster sauce
2 tbls teriyaki sauce
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 tbls soy sauce
1tbls minced garlic
1 tbls grated fresh ginger
2 bunches green onions, cut in 1/4 inch pieces
1/2 head of cabbage, slivered
3-4 stalks of celery, chopped
1 large carrot, shredded medium
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 can (28 oz) bean sprouts, drained
1 small can water chestnuts, drained and chopped
3 cups cooked meat, chopped (pork or chicken)
2 packages egg roll wraps
2 eggs
Stir fry together all vegetables in a little oil until cabbage is crisp-tender. Add all liquids and the meat, and bring to a boil for 5 minutes. Place in an air-tight container and refrigerate over night. Continue as in the above recipe, “Homemade Egg Rolls”, remembering to work quickly. It really helps if you have someone to help you when it comes to the frying, one to wrap and one to do the frying part. These little treats freeze really well which is nice because they do take awhile to prepare, but they are well worth it,,,,,,,trust me! And just a little note, if you have left-over egg roll wraps, slice them up and fry them in the hot oil until golden brown, drain on paper towels and sprinkle with a little salt. These are great atop a nice fresh salad…………
