Smother your okra with onions & a can of rotel
Brown some Tasso (add a little tomato sauce while browning to get a nice rusty color)
Add the okra to the Tasso with some stock
Boil about an hour
Add shrimp & let them cook
I love making this, one of the best ways to eat okra...

Remember my dad and some of his buddies would charter a Trailways bus for all the people from town who would go to the games. I also remember all the men having "liquor briefcases" that they would bring to the game, basically a small case that held a fifth on one side & jiggers etc on the other; tho...

[quote]its not gumbo if there isnt a roux. Period[/quote]
Agreed 1000% but some people call what I described "okra gumbo", it's okra soup or smothered okra & tasso to me.
Also, you don't have to wait till spring, buy 6lbs of frozen cut okra (this fits perfectly in my medium magnolite roaster) &...

The seared ahi tuna salad is VERY good, shockingly well done for a sports bar-they make a wrap version of it but it isn't nearly as good. Their cheese logs are also great as an app & the angels on horseback. Burgers are not bad & a good choice. They have a blackjack (or something like that) chicken ...

I always plant okra so I usually smother down (with onions) about 20-30lbs of it a year. I like it as a side dish with rice & gravy & I will also put some in my gumbo (seafood &/or hen & sausage) on occasion. I also make what some people call okra gumbo without roux-never understood why people call ...

An opportunity for an SEC team to shut Bob Stoops up does rank as important but it is UT so it is not very realistic to think that UT will do anything to shut him up. I hope I'm wrong because I hate that asshat. So it's UGA vs SC, even if pre season favorite SC loses, UGA & Gurley are still a big s...

I let Kary make all my roux, he's even nice enough to put it in a jar for me. Nothing against making a roux; done it a million times but I'd rather spend more time on the raw ingredients that affect the taste of my gumbo or fricassee more than the taste of homemade vs jar roux. ...

Couldn't have asked for a better scenerio, a young team goes on the road against a good team, falls behind, mounts a second half comeback & wins the game. Gave the young players a taste of it all; road environment, adversity, & victory. A blowout win may have given the young guys too much false brav...
