    gertc96's Note:

    I saw Paula Deen make this on her show the other day... I just had to try it for supper that night and it was wonderful... Me and my kids love fried okra and this recipe just made us love it that much more.... Hope you enjoy it...I didn't make the chili sauce that went with it.... But, I'm adding that on here as well....

      couldn't give 5 stars because i didn't make it all the way. I didn't make the sauce because well- couldn't find the ingredients! :-( I love Paula and anything she fries up has to be GREAT- this went over well with the whole family. but let me tell you that 1 lb of okra will feed 4 people. thanks for sharing another one of paula's master recipes
