Looking for a good gumbo recipe


I've never made gumbo and want to venture out this weekend and give it a try! I prefer thicker roux, so does anyone have a recipe thats not too crazy? Would appreciate it!


Post it here or just send me an email

Look up Emerils seafood gumbo. It's pretty good.

Make your own shrimp stock, it makes a big difference. I'd add more but I'm busy.

You've never made gumbo and "prefer a thicker roux?" What do you mean? You have no idea what you're talking about....do you?

I think he meant a thicker consistency to the dish overall.

Just cook it down more but make sure you season accordingly, the more you cook it down the farther the seasoning you've used will go.

Google a Paul Prudhomme recipe. Follow his general instructions and you can't go wrong.

2 Whole Chickens

1 Lb. Sausage
5 Yellow Onions Chopped
4 Bell Peppers Chopped
3 Bunches Green Onions Chopped
1 Bunch Celery Chopped
1 Clove Garlic (1 Tsp. Chopped)
5 Bay Leaves
1 Lb. Sliced Okra
½ Cup Lea & Perrins
2 Cups Oil
2-1/2 Cups Flour
Salt, Black Pepper, Red Pepper, White Pepper, Garlic Powder
Rice, French Bread, Tabasco, File’


RECIPE:

1) Make a Stock:
- Use a 4 Gallon Pot and 2 Gal. Water.
- Add Bay Leaves, 3 Tbs. Salt, 1 Tbs. Garlic Powder, 1 Tsp. each of
Red, Black and White Pepper, 1 Onion and 3 Stalks Celery.
- Add cut up Chicken and/or Turkey Leftovers. Use everything including
giblets. I save bags of Poultry scraps in my freezer for making Stock
(Skin, Tails, Wing Tips, Carcass/Scraps, etc.).
- Cover and cook slow until meat is ready to de-bone (about 1 hour)
and let cool.
- Remove all unwanted skin, bones, etc.
- De-bone Chicken and set aside in fridge for later.

2) Slice Sausage 1/4" Thick, brown in deep sided Skillet and set aside
for later. Reserve rendered grease.

3) Make a Roux:
- Add 2 Cups Oil to rendered Sausage grease on low heat.
- Gradually whisk in 2-1/2 Cups Flour to heated oil.
- Stir frequently for 1 to 1-1/2 hours until the Roux is Dark Brown.
- Add Lea & Perrins to Roux and blend.

4) Saute chopped Onion, Bell Pepper, Celery in Roux. These should be
chopped and seasoned with Tony’s prior to starting.

5) Add Roux/Veggies to boiling Stock. Add water as needed. Chicken
Broth can be substituted for water if desired.

6) Add Sausage, Okra and Garlic. Add all Green Onion except for about
½ cup to be saved for Garnish. Cover and cook on low heat for 1-1/2
hours stirring occasionally. Add seasoning to taste and water as
needed.

7) Cut Chicken into bite size pieces and add to Gumbo. Cover and cook
on low heat for ½ hour.

8) Serve over Rice, with Green Onions for Garnish and sliced French
Bread. I always provide Tabasco and File for those who like it (if you
don’t, someone will ask).

I would give you my Fried Chicken Gumbo recipe, but then i would have do deep fry kill you. But if you are making gumbo for the first time buy the roux from the store. They are good for a first timer. Then just add all the things you want in a gumbo, taadaaahhh gumbo recipe.

All day........

If you can do most of your prep work (chop your veggies and make your stock) the night before it makes it a lot easier. Just take your time and do not get in a hurry........

I'm not messing with you TreeDawg. I'm messing with this newb who needs to do a thread search. Everyone on here knows you are the recipe king.

And you need to learn to shave 1 1/2 hours off your cook time and make a 5 minute roux:)

Worcestshire and bay leaf in gumbo is a new one on me, guess the prairie version is what I'm used to and made with hen instead of chicken.
