I'm sure you are super nice and cute as a button, but I am quite suspicious of this approach.

I'd need to see it in action.

Both, on occasion. I was using chicken stock and switched and the difference was amazing. Mind you, I like my gumbo more like a stew. I have had many gumbos that were thin and watery, like dirty dish water. Everyone who has ever had my dad's gumbo loves it. It reminds me a little of the Chime's D&S gumbo, at least when I worked there in 2000. Just saying, it was a damn fine batch, Rouge.

ETA: Rouge I think my Dad uses beef broth because he didn't like the greasiness of dark meat chicken. Added that richer flavor in lieu of. It really is very good.

Hope that’s not an overkill of gumbo threads today.


No such thing.

How thick do you make your gumbo?

Between water and gelatin? Mine does not slosh in the bowl without effort.

I prefer canola but any oil with a high smoke point will do. I’d recommend a .75:1 ratio too.


Damn that looks good. Gonna try this.

Looks delicious.

I'm always worried about making the roux in the same pot that the meat is browned due to small pieces of the chicken and sausage that remain that can cause some burning. Is that not a concern? I'd rather do it your way.

Thanks to OP. I'd never made a gumbo before and tried this one last night. It came out great.

Beautiful color Dav. The only difference between my and yours is I don't brown my sausage near that much and I do it all in one pot.

my main reason for the post was to get people into making gumbo, hence this “beginners” receipe.

I switch back and forth from my 6 qt enameled pot and the skillet for the roux. I almost prefer the skillet cause it has more surface area for browning the meats. I need to invest in a bigger enameled pot

Pretty sure they boil theirs, debone it and use bones to start stock..but hey..what do we know, there is only 1 way to make gumbo right ?

Chicken on the grill is so much better. The boiled chicken is not good. Stringy. I like gumbo when the chicken is cut in to chunks that stay together.

The first poster was the one who scoffed at the idea of browning the chicken.
