Pan Fried Okra

1 - 28 oz bag of frozen okra (you may use fresh okra, if available)

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper (more if you would like)

2 tablespoons flour

Olive oil to coat the bottom of a cast iron skillet

Combine the okra with the seasonings and flour.

Heat the oil in a cast iron skillet and add the okra.

Cover for about 8-9 minutes and cook over medium heat without disturbing.

Remove the lid.

Gently turn over the okra in small sections.

Continue cooking, checking every 3-4 minutes.

Don't continuously stir this, just flip in sections.

Stirring will make this a slimy mess! :)

Cook until it has reached the desired amount of caramelization.

Remove from heat and serve.
