This is a southern soul-food classic which is a snap to prepare. If okra turns you off, look elsewhere! The pickled pork gives it a great flavor so don't substitute regular ham.

This recipe was amazing. We used "Wham"; which is vegetarian and fresh okra. added a bit of hickory powder. A great change from the usual tomatoes and okra. Thank you.

A friend asked for this for Thanksgiving and I wouldn't admit I had no idea how to make it. Luckily I found this recipe! It turned out great and he loved it. I did substitute smoked ham hocks for the pickeled pork shoulder though.

Maybe I did something wrong, but this was mushy and not much taste.
