      In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium heat and stir in the flour, sprinkling a little at a time and whisking inches Whisk slowly and constantly for 20 to 25 minutes to make a dark brown roux, the color of chocolate.

      Soooooo good! I used fresh green beans in lieu of the okra (my DH won't eat okra). I used olive oil to make the roux and I wouldn't change anything!
