In a large skillet over high heat, add 2 tbsp oil and flour to the pan, and whisk together quickly.

Continue cooking and stirring until a "peanut butter" brown roux forms.

Saute bell pepper, onions, garlic, and celery in a little butter or oil until soft.

Add to the roux the chicken stock, sauteed mixture, okra, tomatoes, chicken, and sausage.

Add spices and season to taste.

Cook about 30 minutes and the last 5-8 minutes add the shrimp.
