Consider sound when cooking this dish. The andouille sizzles loudly at first, then quiets as it renders fat, indicating that it's nearly done. The vegetables cook softly as they release liquid. But the noise increases as they start to caramelize. Don't worry if the bottom of the pan becomes dark brown or even black in parts before you add the broth; it deepens the flavor of the dish.
