How to avoid slimy gumbo?



Making Chicken and sausage gumbo and I am about to toss in some okra, anything that I need to do to make sure it doesn't get too slimy?

TIA

I use okra and it doesn't come out slimy

I usually put it in a few minutes after the trinity

This. I start out w frozen and process or dice it down to small pieces. Like maybe the size of a green pea.

When my gumbo is done, the only remnants of okra you can see ar the seeds. And no slime.

If fresh okra, cook it separately to point of doneness, strain it and warm that water for a few minutes, then strain and rinse it again, the gumbo pot.

or just reduce the amount of okra you use.

It doesn't take much.

Fry it in a tiny bit of oil....Until it quits "stringing"....Keep it moving so it want burn.~ Add it early in the cooking process....
