Directions

Roux:
In a 2-quart saucepan, stir together the flour and oil until smooth, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium heat and stir for 15 minutes until the mixture forms a reddish-brown color.

In a crockpot, pour in 3 cups of water and stir in the roux. Add in all other ingredients and stir. Cover the crockpot and let the stew cook on low heat for 6-7 hours.

Serve over cooked rice.
