Texas Fried Okra

Recipe By : The Wide, Wide World of Texas Cooking ISBN 0-517-120089

Serving Size : 4

1 pound okra
cornmeal
lard
salt and pepper

Wash okra, cut off stems and cut diagonally into 1/4 inch slices. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then dredge in cornmeal, tossing and turning the okra in the meal until thoroughly coated. Heat 1/4 inch lard in a heavy skillet, the size depending on the quantity of okra. Add okra and fry over moderate heat. When the pieces on the bottom are brown, turn with a spatula so the rest can brown evenly. When done, skim out with perforated spatula. Drain on paper before serving.
