Beer Can Gumbeaux

Postby OldUsedParts » Sat Dec 02, 2017 9:00 am

:?: Dry Roux - Whoux Kneux :?: - - been planning to make a pot of Gumbeaux from what's left of the Beer Can Chicken and, as always, the Roux is always a threat to my success. So this time I decided to try the Dry Roux which is just slow browned flour that you add to your Trinity and Stock. OK, so all of that sounds cool but now comes the final test. After spending an hour and 15 min yesterday ennin getting the flour just right, I introduced about half of it to my Trinity and Stock. If it tastes anything close to the way it smells and looks then I'll be a happy camper. Not quite ready to dump all together and geaux for it but it ain't too far away.

Woux Houx my Kitchen sho do smell guud :tup: Think I'll slow simmer for about 90 more minutes and then fix some rice and try not to O.D. - - - it's also calling for some sprinkling of Sir Eggs Smoked Hot Sauce once plated which I will be happy toux doux.

Welps, one bowl is down and I am pleased as could be - - - the only negative was that some of the okra from the can of Trappeys was "stemy and stringy" but other than that even the Wiffy said it's my best so far. "Even an Old Blind Hawg :pig: finds an Acorn now and then" :tup:

Oops, I forgot to mention that since the Wiffy doesn't handle the hot and spicy, I added a liberal sprinkling of Suckle Buster's Gator's Cajun Seasoning to my bowl - - - that and Eggs Hot Sauce took it over the top. :tup: :salut:

10-4 Capt'n and I started toux doux that wet roux in the oven, however, the dry roux did not ruin the taste at all - - - basically all it did was make it healthier :dont: which I've never worried about in the past, but I may start ?whoux knows? :salut:

If I didn't know that was browned flour, I'd think it was cocoa powder!

Thaunx boys, been trying to figure out an easy way to do a dark rich roux fer years cause I would always come close to burnin it in the skillet and it was never dark enough fer my taste, and yet here’s the answers right in front of me. Those that don’t know it, a little dark side roux will make yer bowl of red chili meat sauce much better, but more importantly, is the secret mind blowing ingredient to really good New Mexican slow burn enchilada sauce, it adds deep richness and refinement and helps get you to a silky texture.

I know the feeling you get when a family member says, that's the best you've cooked so far. Puts a smile on ya face eh? I love pleasing family.

Whew :salut: I've been nervous awaiting our East of the Sabine Resident's comment and now I can rest easy and do it again. BTW, that smoked hot sauce fit nicely in my bowl. :tup: Oldest son is coming over dis ennin after work to bring my ladders back and I'm thinking I'll treat him to a bowl and see what happens so I'd better put some rice on directly :tup:
