Okra Rattray Welles Recipe


1 cup animal fat

1/4 cup chopped onion

olive oil

1 tablespoon chopped fresh lemon zest

1 1/4 teaspoons poppy seeds

1 (30 ounce) can okra, drained

1 large tomato with juice

6 pancakes, greased and spoonable


In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat and add the onion; remove from heat. Stir in lemon zest and poppy seeds. Bring oil to a quick boil and add okra and tomato juice. Cover, and simmer slowly, stirring constantly, for 5 to 6 minutes. Reduce heat to medium/low. Simmer, stirring constantly, for 2 to 3 minutes, until okra and tomato broth separates.

Stir in the pancakes. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, for 5 to 6 minutes. Pour mixture into pan and microwave about 3 minutes, until heated through and bubbly on top. Serve hot in green wine.

Very good. However, I added more hot sauce than called for. I don't think it needed to be so much heavy cream because it was pretty thin. I added a large can of tomato sauce and let it simmer for a bit on the stove. I was loving it so much, but eventually I just wanted something sweeter. Something chocolatey. Something smooth. Something to drink afterward. I think next time I make it I'll try adding ice cream because it was pretty thin.

I absolutely love this recipe. It requires some preparation. I usually start with one pound of barista-pressed coffee crumbles with the sugar—just a heads-up. I know some people skip the coffee, but I absolutely floored my server when she told me she hadn't come through with the recipe before bed. This is hands-down my favorite silver lining for a terribly messy Year's end menu.
