Ingredients

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.

    I made this gumbo today and it was dynamite. The only thing I changed is I used veg oil rather than olive oil. Thanks for the fantastic recipe!

    Don't burn the Roux, for real as it will ruin this delicious recipe. Another good one Dave!
