Swamp Gravy

This one goes back to a post on another site from April 2006. The OP is a good old boy from GA. I substitute fresh string beans for the okra and do it with thin cut, boneless pork chops. The okra would thicken the gravy, if itís too thin I thicken it with a little corn starch in cold water. Not much to it, brown the pork chops in bacon grease with fresh garlic, add the stewed tomatoes & vegetables, cover, and simmer for two hours.

"With all of the talk on the board about fish fries, gumbo, okra, etc., a true SOUTHERN Fish Fry is not complete without Swamp Gravy. While this dish is as individual as the person who makes it, here is a basic recipe to begin with.

Swamp Gravy

2 large potatoes, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1 14 oz can whole kernel Corn
1 28 oz can of crushed red tomatoes
1 14 oz can cut okra
1 28 oz can water (use the tomato can to measure)

Pour grease in which you used to fry your fish up into old coffee can and set aside for the next time you fry fish. Put frying pan back on the burner. Heat on high. Add all the ingredients to the drippings in the bottom of the frying pan. Add water. Stirring constantly until vegetables are done and liquid is thickened."

My way.

Good eats indeed.
