  cook slowly until green pepper is wilted.  Add cut okra to the kettle

  and veal cubes and cook over medium heat, stirring to brown meats on
  all sides. Pour off any excess fat ant add the meats and bones to the

  Pour a cup of water into the skillet and use a wooden spoon to loosen
  all the brown particles that cling to the bottom and sides.  Mix and
  pour this into the kettle.  Add the parsley, tomatoes, Tabasco and
  Worcestershire sauces and lemon juice.  Add the shrimp, crab, oysters
  (with their liquid) and reserved bacon.  Add enough water to cover
  all ingredients, bring the gumbo to a boil and turn off the heat.
  Stir in the file powder and stir to mix but do not boil again.  To
  serve, spoon a mound of cooked rice into the middle of each soup
  plate, then ladle the gumbo around the rice.
