Chicken & Sausage Gumbo

Postby Williep » Thu Aug 16, 2018 6:04 am

Normally I spend the time making my own roux but I guess I'm getting lazy in my old age :dont: but I saw this stuff at H.E.B. and just had to try it, Blue Runner Creole Gumbo Base (for chicken & sausage). I started out by grilling/smoking some skinless boneless chicken breast's, a link of chicken sausage and threw on some DJ's Boudin for a side dish, next I sauteed some Kroger Cajun Style MIREPOIX (onions, celery, green bell pepper) that I had in the freezer, added that to the gumbo base and brought it to a boil. Then I added the cut up chicken, sausage and let it simmer for about half an hour, fixed some white rice and dinner was served. Turned out pretty darn good.

OUP, the question is, would I use it again, yes I would. I did miss the smell you get from making a roux and a plus was, my arm and wrist wasn't wore out from stirring the roux. :lol: If I'm going to make a big pot of seafood gumbo I'll be making a roux. :salut: :salut:

When I'm winding down in the afternoon I like to sit out back with a cold drink and it's nice to have some smoke coming out of the pit so that's why I did the chicken for the gumbo like I did. :salut: :salut:

The easy/lazy way to make a roux is in an oven safe pan (preferably a cast iron skillet). Mix the flour and oil in the skillet on the stove and then throw the pan in the oven @ 350. Stir periodically, every 15 min or so (doesn't have to be exact) until you get the color you're looking for. Easy peasy! It takes longer than the traditional stove top method but you eliminate the risk of burning the roux, you're not tiring out your wrist and arm AND you're free to do other things while the roux is baking in the oven.

Nice gumbo - I could hide a couple bowls of that.

I guess I’m old school. I make a roux like my MIL taught me. It takes me 12 minutes, at the most, to make a mahogany colored roux, or darker. I have made a roux in seven minutes. Turn the heat up to max, don’t stop stirring, be ready to take the pot off, and have veggies cut up ready to drop in the pot.
