What the shite is this? I thought the whole differentiation between a sauce piquant and other roux based dishes is the presence of tomatoes?!?

Oh, and to the OP, I use this sauce piquant mix from the Creole Company. It's good shite and easy. Yeah, I know I'm goign to catch some shite for not making my own gravy/roux

Gotta have tomatoes in a sauce piquant, IMO.

That was always my thought. That is, by defintion, what makes it a sauce piquant. I was very taken aback by that statement about a real Cajun doesn't use tomatoes

It was a joke. Some TD posters say if you put tomatoes in a gumbo then it's not gumbo anymore. The guy was carrying it to this trhead. That is all.

On topic. Here's what I do. I make a roux. In another pot add bell peppers, onions, garlic, jalapeno and cook it down in a little oil then add meat and rotel. Cook all that til the meat is done. Throw in a small can of tomato paste and get it all stirred in together. Add stock and roux til the consistency is right. Then let it simmer all together for about an hour and serve over rice with french bread.

He's just making reference to the "great tomato gumbo war"...sauce piquant ALWAYS has some aspect of tomato in it-rotel, tomato sauce, tomato paste- otherwise you're just making hen in a brown gravy. I learned how to cook a sauce piquant at the hands of some VERY good Cajun cooks & they said put tomato in it, so by damn, I put tomato in it!

Here is a respectable venison sauce piquante recipe from Hank Shaw, a non LA blogger who writes about hunting, foraging, and cooking what he gathers: LINK /

Here's my shrimp SP recipe: LINK /
I like crushed tomatoes rather than tomato paste, plus some heavier spicing (a little cloves, nutmeg, allspice) than many traditional recipes.

My recipe is pretty close to Treedogs. I started with 3 solo cups of oil and 4 of flour. When roux is done, I add the paste and onions only and cook slowly for an hour or so. Pic above was getting close to done. I then add my peppers, celery and garlic.
