Mouthwatering Stewed Pork and Okra

"Okra sometimes referred to as “lady’s finger,” comes in green and red. Both varieties taste the same. It’s frequently used in Southern American cuisine and is a staple in gumbo. Some people find it unappealing due to its slimy texture. But, with this recipe, you won’t even notice that. It actually helps thicken the sauce. Okra is rich in nutrients and has antioxidant properties. So, it’s worth trying."
