How to make it
- NOTE: The ROUX: if the roux burns at all, discard and start again.
- Combine the oil and flour together in a large, heavy saucepan. Cook over med-low heat, whisking constantly, for ~ 12 to 15 minutes, until it turns the color of rich milk chocolate.
- Add the onions, bell peppers, celery, garlic, and Cajun seasoning to the roux and continue cooking and stirring for ~ 5 minutes until the vegetables turn tender.
- Add the smoked sausage and raw chicken and continue cooking for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Stir in the chicken stock, Worcestershire sauce, and bay leaves into the gumbo, bring it to gentle simmer and cook it uncovered, for 1 hour.
- Cook rice according to the package directions and set aside (I use a rice cooker... so I start it about the time the stock is added)
- Add the okra to the gumbo and continue simmering it for 15 to 20 minutes until the okra is tender. Note: If adding the shrimp.. wait until the okra is almost tender.. then cook until the shrimp is pink and translucent)
- Remove gumbo from the heat.
- To serve: Place a scoop of warm rice in a large soup bowl, add ladleful of hot gumbo. Sprinkly with fresh parsley and hot sauce to taste.
