okra and bacon

stirfried okra with bacon (or not)

Yields4 Servings
ingredients
 4 slices of uncured bacon
 1 tbsp coconut or peanut oil (if omitting bacon)
 1 lb okra
 2 cloves of garlic, minced
 ½ tsp sea salt (more if omitting bacon)
 1 tbsp Shaoxing cooking wine or dry sherry or vermouth
method
1

Skipping the bacon? Skip this step. Cut the bacon into large dice, then while you prepare the rest of the ingredients, cook it in a skillet or wok over low heat until crisp. Remove to a paper towel to drain, pouring off most of the fat but leaving about 1 T in the pan.

2

While the bacon cooks, remove the tops and tails of the okra, and cut it horizontally into 1/2" slices or roll-cut.

3

Stirfry the okra over high heat in the remaining fat (or the oil) until just softened and lightly browned.

4

Add the garlic and salt, stirfry quickly to mix—don't let the garlic brown!

5

Add the wine, stirfry quickly until it evaporates, then return the bacon to the pan and stir just to mix. Serve immediately.
