Okra can be slimy if boiled. I will be omitting the okra and adding something else to it. My son has a recipe for gumbo and I was surprised that it didn't call for okra. But try it the way the recipe calls for and if you don't like the okra that way try frying it in flour and olive oil before adding it to recipe then it will be crispy not slimy.
