    gailanng's Note:

    This is the easiest way to smother okra. Using this method, the okra can be eaten as is or used as a base for Okra Gumbo. To prepare the gumbo, all that needs to be added to this full batch of cooked okra is about 3 to 4 pounds peeled and deveined shrimp, cooking stovetop for about 20 to 25 minutes after returning to a simmer. Should additional liquid need be added, do so towards the end of the 20 minutes by adding broth, water or shrimp stock to reach desired consistency. Serve gumbo over cooked rice.
