No heavy sauce, the only naughty thing is the bacon grease and there wasn't much of that!
This was fantastic over pressure cooker brown rice.
Half of a small onion, small dice
1 large garlic clove, minced
Half of a green pepper, about 3/4" dice-I freeze extra peppers
Heaping Tblsp bacon grease-in lieu of sausage
Half a can of diced tomatoes-leftover and frozen, I used petite dice
About a cup of okra-Had a bag in the freezer
1 tsp Emeril's Essence-homemade recipe here
Sliced pre-cooked chicken-leftovers from the freezer thawed, however much you have or would like
A few grinds of black pepper
Salt to taste-I used smoked salt because I had it
Serve over rice
- Over medium heat saute the onion in bacon grease, stirring, until it starts to get translucent.
- Add garlic and green pepper, stirring, cook for about 2 minutes.
- Add tomatoes, okra and Emeril's Essence, cook for about 8 minutes-until the tomato liquid reduces a bit.
- Add S&P to taste and serve over rice.
