Modifications: I used boneless skinless thighs, and only 1 pound. I also didn’t have time to simmer for as long as she indicates, so the first simmer was about 45 minutes, and the second was probably only 20 minutes, but I added a bit less liquid so it would be thicker.
Time to table: Well, as directed, it would take about 3+ hours. For me it still took nearly 2 hours from start to finish since it always seems to take me awhile to chop a bunch of veggies.
Servings: Tons, and she mentions it freezes well. We took leftovers for lunches for a few days.
Notes: I really wanted to try something with okra, since I’d never had it before. This was definitely tasty, but for me was not at all worth the effort it took to make it. I do enjoy a nice long involved meal on a weekend, but when I take the time, I want it to be awesome – perhaps it’s because I didn’t follow all the instructions, but really I think I just don’t like this type of meal as well as one that includes some form of cheese 😉
