Okra gumbo

This is my family’s recipe with a spin. They don’t add the prosciutto, but I find that it adds a bit more of a rich flavor to it. Sure to be a family and crowd pleaser with its rustic country style flavor. Hope you enjoy!

1 Pkg Bacon – I prefer hickory smoked
1 Pkg diced Prosciutto
2 Bags (frozen) whole or cut okra
2 Cans Fire Roasted Tomatoes
1 1/2-2 Cans warm water
3/4-1 Cup ketchup
1/2 Cup Worstershire sauce

Start on medium heat
Dry fry* bacon brown
Once bacon is browned, add tomatoes
Stir in the ketchup and Worstershire sauce and water
Turn heat to high and bring to slow boil, stirring
Once on a gentle rolling boil, add the okra and stir in
Let boil again, stirring so bottom won’t burn
Add the prosciutto and turn heat down to low to cook the sauce thick** remembering to stir and taste
Add more ketchup and Worstershire sauce as needed to flavor
Serve and enjoy!!

* dry fry – no oil or butter.
** if its not thickening to your liking fast enough, you can add a small amount of cornstarch
