When all the liquid is boil down, you should add the okra and cover the pan.

DO NOT STIR the okra into the meat, as it will make the sauce very viscous. Let the okra simmer for 30 minutes then to uncover the pan and gently stir the okra. Add ½ a cup of water and let it simmer on medium heat. Taste one to make sure it is tender. If it’s tender, then it’s ready to eat.

Okra sauce can be served with any kind of rice or cornmill. It may be paired with other dishes but in my culture (Haitian that is), they usually serve it with rice.
