Okra Gumbo

READY IN: 2hrs 25mins
Recipe by True Texas

I got this recipe from a relative back in the early '70's we've been enjoying ever since. It won 1st place in our cooking contest at my family reunion. You may want to add a little water or chicken broth to this.

Wow, this was great! Only changes, didn't use butter or bouillon cube. Cooked 4 bone-in w/skin thighs on Foreman grill and used some of the drippings and added water to that. Added some jalapeno link sausage, shrimp, fresh okra from our garden and more Old Bay. My husband thinks this is the best Gumbo ever. Thank you so much!
