His dirty rice recipe is absolutely delicious, I quadruple the batch when I make it and store the gravy portion in the freezer. Can’t wait to try this!

Yeah I thought that was weird, but I thought that it was just my ignorance since I'm not from there and I don't know the difference between Cajun and Creole.

Not OP but dissolve roux (or make it) in a few quarts of water/chicken stock. Heat on high. Add boneless thighs/sausage. Add onion. Season to taste (Cajun seasoning or salt, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne) Let simmer for a good 45-1hr. Add green onion. Add parsley (optional).

Wow now this is a Gumbo. I made one last week and mine didn't look this good haha. I have to learn how to cook the roux right.

It needs to be dark brown, but not burnt, have a nutty popcorn smell and have a texture similar to wet sand.

Definitely go low and slow. Not so much to avoid burning the roux, but to avoid burning yourself. I always get a small burn every time I make gumbo lol.

Makes me so homesick! Looks really good.

Weird question but can gumbo be spicy at all?


drunkhighfives OP t1_ixfbnfh wrote

I put a couple habaneros into mine.

I meant to throw in some crushed red pepper into the roux with the veggies, but I didn't take it out the cabinet and completely forgot until it was basically finished.
