Holiday Blizzard Gumbo

Posted in Food, Original Food with tags , , on December 27, 2010 by BassNinjaDGrizzly

First time making gumbo. Can’t wait to do it again! It came out so damn good. You can really throw in whatever you want within reason

I started by making a rue in my pot with some oil, butter, and flour

At the same time I caramelized some onions and garlic in a saute pan

At the same time get some water boiling for rice in another pot (barley is really good too)

I then whisked chicken and beef broth in to combine with the rue to create the thick soup base. Add tomato pure, carrots, celery, chillies, the onions and garlic. Add thyme, bay leaves, salt, pepper, oregano, old bay.

Add long grain rice to boiling water. Add lid, simmer for about 40 minutes

Sear some chicken breasts in olive oil with cayenne pepper, salt and pepper. Slice into bite sized pieces, toss in soup

Sear shrimp in same pan with some old bay and olive oil. Toss in pot

Sear some andouille sausage or kielbasa. Slice in chunks, toss in pot

Toss mushrooms in pan, deglaze with dark beer. Add to pot

Medium-high til meats are cooked through

You can either add the rice while its still a little hard or cook it how you like it and ladle the gumbo over top

Takes about an hour all together. Well worth it
