so easy to make and flavor was terrific! I have an athentic gumbo recipe from my Cajun uncle and I think this taste better and is a lot easier to make. Definitely going into the monthly recipes for family
My family loves this recipe. It is not hard to make, in my opinion, but it does take a little more time than the average soup recipe. We live in the Northeast now, so finding the Andouille sausage and okra were challenging. We like spicy food, so this hit the spot. Most of the spice comes from the sausage, so if you like it less spicy, I would use less sausage.
This recipe was not exactly easy. I used what I considered a medium dutch oven, but that was apparently too big. The amount of oil and flour was too small for me to tell if the roux was brown enough. It did not work out and I ended up throwing everything away. What a waste of food!
I've never made gumbo before, but I've tasted a lot. This was FANTASTIC!! I will make it again for sure. Next time, I will work on preparing some of the steps prior to make it quicker at dinner time. I used 3 teaspoons of Cajun seasoning, and my husband said it was a little too spicy. I thought it was great!
I will surely make this recipe again. My husband loved it. It made quite a big amount, so we had leftovers several times and he did not complain a bit.
This has a nice flavor. My husband said "please make again". Even my picky son liked the flavor. It was not as "easy" as I thought since you spent quite a bit of time at the stove stirring and browning the vegetables.
