My husband and I absolutely love this dish! It is a great dish to cook in the summer due to the abundance of garden fresh tomatoes and okra. We used tomatoes and okra that were found in our garden and he freshness in taste is evident. It is a one pot meal with easy clean up. As my husband would say, "minimal mess!" I would definitely recommend peeling the tomatoes and using fresh tomatoes. The first time I cooked this meal, I used tomatoes and didn't peel the skin and it was more meaty than I liked. The second time was 100% better!! Add it to your recipe box!

Excellent dish, especially served over Basmati or Jasmine rice and a dash of Louisiana hot sauce.
