Stewed Okra with Tomatoes and Onion

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil (or Bacon Grease, If You Have It!)
1 whole Vidalia Onion, Diced
1 pound Okra, Sliced Into Rounds
1 clove Garlic, Minced
4 whole Medium Tomatoes, Peeled & Chopped
1 teaspoon Sea Salt
1 teaspoon Pepper
3 dashes Tabasco Pepper Sauce

Heat oil in a heavy pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat, then add onions, garlic and okra. Stir frequently until the vegetables are soft (about 5 minutes). Okra produces a nasty slime while it cooks, don’t be alarmed, it will go away as the dish cooks. Add tomatoes, salt and pepper and a few dashes of Tabasco and stir until most of the okra slime is gone. Reduce heat to low (simmer) and cook about 10-15 minutes until tomatoes are cooked down!
