  1. Who says an Okie, living in Texas can't cook a good gumbo.  Bon appetit.

  2. Well it sure does look good.

    Never had Gumbo before but heard it was very good.

    Happy Smokin'

    But I'm a pushover for pictures of sliced up smoked sausages in anything.  [​IMG]

    A recipe would surely help.

    It looks amazing  but can the Texas Okie help us with the recipe
  6. Let's see,

    1 cup flour

    1/2 cup oil/lard/bacon drippings, etc.

    1 1/2 cups chopped onion

    1/2 cup celery

    1/2 cup bell pepper (color of your choice)

    1/2 cup green onions

    1 small bag of frozen okra

    2+ tbs slap yo moma

    1 tsp cayenne pepper

    1 tsp ground mint

    3 bay leaves

    3 cloves garlic

    1 tbs worchestershire  (sp?)

    1 1/2 lbs andouille, smoked sausage, deer sausage, keilbasa etc.

    1 1/2 lbs smoked turkey or chicken

    2-3 qts chicken stock

    file powder if you have a taste

    steamed rice

    make a dark roux with the flour and oil (the color of dark chocolate).  stir in the onions and cook to clear (this will stop the roux cooking).  add the celery, pepper, and green onions, cook for 3-5 minutes.  add a little stock to form a paste and stir in the garlic. cook for 3 to 5 minutes.  stir in stock to make a fairly thin sauce.  we will thicken this with the okra.  stir in remaining spices and sausage and bring to a boil.  reduce heat and simmer,covered, for 1 hour.  add the chicken or turkey, and the okra and simmer another hour uncovered.  adjust consistancy and flavor at this point if needed, then serve over rice and garnish with green onions, file, or chopped parsley.
