Step 1

Wash okra and cut off the tips and stem ends. Cut the pods crosswise into slices about
1/4 inch thick. Combine flour, cornmeal, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. In another
bowl, beat the egg. Dip okra into the egg, coating on all sides, and then dredge in the
flour mixture, making sure to completely cover the okra. Heat the vegetable oil in a
skillet over medium-high heat. Add okra and fry until brown - about 10 minutes, depending
on thickness. Flip to make sure the okra is crisp and browned on both sides. Drain on
paper towels before serving.
