  2. Add in the puréed tomatoes, okra and stock and stir to combine with the vegetables. Sprinkle in Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning and the Italian seasoning and stir into the sauce. Cover and let simmer on low for 15-20 minutes until flavors combine and sauce reduces.

  5. Pour entire contents of the skillet into the stew pot and stir into the sauce. Let stew sit on low for another 5 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired.
  6. Serve over rice, mashed potatoes or enjoy as is!
