Palace Station Shrimp Gumbo

Serves 4

6 tablespoons vegetable oil
5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 small onion, finely chopped (1 cup)
1 small red bell pepper, finely chopped (1 cup)
1 large rib celery, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
1 teaspoon dried whole thyme
2 (14 1/2 ounce) cans chicken broth (3 1/2 cups)
1/2 pound (8 ounces) Hormel Cure 81 ham, diced
2 teaspoons Olde Westport Sizzlin' Sunset Cajun Spice Blend
1 (16 ounce) package frozen sliced okra, thawed

2 cups hot cooked rice

Add oil and flour into a heavy 6-quart saucepan, stir until smooth. Cook oil-flour mixture (roux) over medium heat until browned (color of peanut butter), stirring continuously to avoid burning, about 20 minutes. Add onion, bell pepper, celery and thyme, stir and cook 5 minutes. Add broth, ham and Olde Westport Sizzlin' Sunset Cajun Spice Blend, bring to a gentle boil, lower heat, cover, simmer 10 minutes. Add okra, bring to a gentle boil, cook 10 minutes. Add shrimp, cook just until pink, about 5 minutes, adjust to taste with salt and pepper. Ladle into bowls, topped with a scoop of hot cooked rice.
