Cooking Methods

  1. Heat 2 Tbsp of the oil in a large skillet and saute the okra until slightly browned. Set the okra aside. Combine the remaining 2 Tbsp oil and the flour in the skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the roux is medium brown in color (this takes about 20 minutes).

  2. Stir in the onion, celery, bell pepper, garlic, and okra and cook until the vegetables are tender. Transfer the mixture to a large stockpot and add the remaining ingredients.

  3. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Serve hot.
