Paksiw na Okra

Paksiw na okra is a very famous dish among the Ilocanos.  The Okra is usually cooked in bagoong sauce and vinegar.  Most of may not have encountered this dish at all unless you are an Ilocano but I am sure you are familiar of  paksiw na Isda with okra added to it. The method is cooking is almost similar only that bagoong is used to season this dish.  Sometimes a few slices of pork is also added to make it more tasty.
