"A great Southern okra dish that allegedly comes from the heart of Acadiana. This vegetable dish is heavy enough to serve as a main dish and makes one pine for the fiddles and chicory coffee." — wasabinoir

andouille sausage, diced
Creole seasoning, or to taste

Good southern recipe! Here's a tip I found on another site to avoid the sliminess that okra produces: Soak your okra in enough cold water to cover it, then squeeze in the juice of one lime and let your okra sit for 10 to 15 minutes before you cook it. Best tip I've read plus it actually works!
i used frozen okra and corn, however, so that was probably the big problem with my attempt at this recipe! :(
A version of this has long been a family favorite. If you don't have the sausage, brown 1/2 to 1 lb of ground beef and add it along with 1-2 cups of cooked elbow macaroni. It will become an entire dish even without the meat.
I left out the sausage (because I didn't have any) and it came out very good. I can tell the sausage would make it perfect.
I made this and it went like lightning very very good i served it over basmati rice and it was spectacular! ive tried it with rotisserie chicken and its even better!
Simply SPECTACULAR!! I made it by the recipe to a T only adding a jalapeno because I like them and had some on hand. Will add some chicken next time. I seasoned with CREOLE SEASONING BLEND by Joslyn from this site. This is a well-balanced and delicious combination and a great one-dish meal.
Yumm A++ This is a great recipe to use up those garden veggies! I cut the recipe in half because there's only 2 of us. I added a couple of jalepenos and 1/2 of water plus all listed ingredients in a crockpot and let it simmer for a few hours. Thank you wasabinoir! PS: make some cornbread to go along with it!!
This was great! We had never tried okra before, but had picked up some fresh ears of corn and okra from the local produce stand. I only had 1/2 the amount of okra called for, and no sausage, but it was still delicious. In place of the sausage we just substituted left over steak from last night's dinner. I'm sure it is fantastic with the sausage, but it was really great with steak. Husband, kids, and myself all had second helpings! I'll definitely be making this again, although next time I'll plan ahead and get all the ingredients.
