Re: GUMBO

If you need to go quick and easy, I think this is 80% as good as most home made gumbos i've had.



Gumbo Base

About as good as most restaurant gumbos.
I like it for Chicken and Sausage gumbo, but seafood is great too.

Re: GUMBO

Here's a thread with some homemade recipes. Most take several hours if you do it right.

Scratch the Okra and Tomato, and use this one.

I also advise to use a few boxes of chicken broth instead of water. This comes from an excellent cookbook and I would end up taking 1/2 the night typing out this same recipe...

If you have questions feel free to ask.

Easy microwave roux. When making a microwave roux don't go the full 20 min at once, do it in 5 minute increments and keep in mind that you want to stop just before you reach your desired color as it will continue to cook a little after you take it out.

Be careful. Hot roux is oil and will burn the crap out of you.

Can you find fresh pork sausage or smoked pork sausage?



If no Muslims are attending of course.

We have a version of andouille that I could use. Not as good as the real thing but I think it would do the job.
