No More Slime

I love fried okra.  I dearly dearly love fried okra.  Now, I am really not supposed to eat fried anything, but especially breaded fried things.  I cannot stand okra cooked any other way than fried or pickled.  At least that was the case until the Best Boss in the Universe ran across a Cajun dude at her sisters house.  Mr. Cajun Man told her that you can saute okra in olive oil until it quits sliming and it is quite good . Mr. Cajun Man was right.  The okra stays slimy for a few minutes and then it just sort of cooks off.  With a little garlic and some crushed tomatoes it was sooooooo good.
