Okra - minimizing the slime

sasha1 | Jul 23, 2013 09:08 PM

I prepared a dish tonight that I found on another okra recipe thread here. It was just a quick sear of okra in a hot pan, then corn kernels, mix together s&p. The recipe advertised the cooking method as reducing slime.

The taste was good, but the slime was everpresent. It turned me off a bit, but my kids absolutely revolted and they like veggies.

Is there any okra prep method that ACTUALLY minimizes the slime factor?
