Delicious Slow Cooker Okra and Tomato Sugar Free Recipe!

Slow Cooker Sugar Free Tomato & Okra Recipe

I absolutely love okra.  I grew up eating it in gumbo, my dad always had a jar of pickled okra in the fridge, fried okra always went with the fried chicken and a can of okra and tomatoes was a common side dish.

So I thought I’d try my hand at an okra and tomatoes recipe and was so happy with how it turned out.  I used fresh okra but if you can only find frozen, that should work also just don’t get the breaded kind.  Also beware of over-cooking, my first batch was allowed to simmer overnight and was almost completely liquid.  Also beware of the tomato sauce because sometimes they like to add a little sugar to the recipe.  Just check the recipes and make sure it’s just tomatoes and possibly salt.
