How to make it

  • Bring 12 cups of water to a boil. Add roux and be sure to stir constantly or it will stick on the bottom and burn. After roux is melted, turn temperature down on low to medium and add all ingredients except for the meat. After the okra gets tender, smash it with two large spoons and let cook for 30 minutes. Add crab meat and let cook for 10 minutes. Add shrimp and let cook 10 minutes. Turn heat off and let gumbo stand for 30 minutes before serving.

    This looks wonderful! I'm not sure if I can buy the roux in a jar up here, but I bookmarked the recipe to try when it gets colder and I want something hot. Thanks for sharing! High five!
