Bayou Okra Sausage Stew

My husband and I worked on this recipe together. We make a big pot and freeze it to enjoy all winter long. We sometimes stir in sauteed shrimp for a delicious addition to this stew. —Lisa Nelson, Bluffton, South Carolina

    This was petty good but really I like a little more flavor. I used a jalapeno smoke sausage and added more hot sauce. This recipe does make alot! So this would be a great freezer meal.
