FANTASTIC!!! My DH was craving a gumbo he used to have in Alabama. He said that this recipe looked about what he remembered, so we made it tonight. It was sooo good. We did use some bacon grease in with the oil for the roux, and hungarian paprika. This is just wonderful, spicy, but not too spicy. Thanks!
I have never had "real" gumbo, but I thought this was awesome. They key is being patient with the roux. I would say next time though I would cut down on the stock. It seemed a little runny for me. However, I subbed a dark beer for part of the stock b/c I ran out of it, so that could be why mine turned out a little runny. Regardless, a keeper recipe! Thanks!!
YUM!!!!! Made this tonight, my Cajun dad loved it!!! A winner, thanks for posting!!!
As a late Uncle of mine would say,"Now dat am Gumbo put it on the table and get out of my way". My compliments. There is nothing better in this world than good home cookin. Bless you.
OH, my God!! It's a real Cajun gumbo!! No tomatoes, or okra, or canned soups!! Thank you, this has been annoying me lately.
