  • 1 1/2 cups onion
  • 1 1/2 cups green pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups celery
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 12 oz. bag frozen okra
  • 1 tablespoon cajun spice or make your own
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, optional
  • 1 teaspoon file' powder (optional, I didn't use it)
  • Cajun Spice Mix
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  1. Mix together the cajun spice ingredients and set aside.
  2. Put the flour and vegetable oil in a saute pan. Stir to mix together well. Put over low heat and cook until the flour turns brown. This will take about 45 minutes. Stir so the flour doesn't burn, often. When the mixture has turned color add the onion, celery and green pepper.
  3. In a dutch oven add a teaspoon more of oil and brown the pork. Season with salt and pepper. Add the vegetable mix to the pan. Stir in the vegetable mixture, chicken stock and tomatoes. When it comes to a boil add the cajun spice mixture with the additional salt if needed. Cook until the pork is tender.
  4. Cut the sausage into one inch pieces. Add to the pot with the frozen okra. Cook for another 45 minutes over low heat.
  5. Serve with rice.
