Notes

  • Frozen okra could be substituted for frozen lima beans.
  • Use whatever type of smoked sausage you prefer including turkey, polish, kielbasa. The sky is the limit.
  • The amounts of most of these ingredients can be varied if you are trying to use up what's in the fridge. That's the best part of making a stew---you can't really screw it up. 
  • Serve this kielbasa stew over cooked rice.  I love making brown rice as a healthy alternative to white. 
  • If you like your bayou stew hot, add hot sauce to taste.
