DIRECTIONS

  • -----Gumbo--------.
  • Follow recipe on gumbo base container to mix base.
  • Using water is good, but some chicken broth is better.
  • Bring base to a low boil.
  • This is the critical step= stir well because the base wants to stick to the bottom of the pot, while it is being fully dissolved.
  • Add meat, and bring to a low boil again, lower fire and simmer for thirty minutes, stirring occasionally while scraping bottom of pot.
  • stir in okra, and bring back to a low boil for 2-3 minutes, just enough to heat the okra, then serve with cooked long grain white rice.
  • -----------Boiled long grain regular white rice recipe----------.
