Thaw okra. Combine eggs and buttermilk in one bowl, and combine the salt, pepper, and cornmeal in a separate bowl.

1 teaspoon pepper,
4 cups okra,

Coat okra with egg/buttermilk mixture and then transfer to dry mixture and coat.
Heat approximately 1/4 cup of oil in a skillet until hot. Dip okra from the bowl into the oil with a slotted spoon. (Leave the extra cornmeal in the bowl and throw away).
