thesnappysneezer and lovebugmama - Your ignorance is just amazing. This is a very good recipe... I like the traditional dark roux but this is and excellent variation.....
Some of these comments are just rude! Why does a recipe have to be the way you think it should be! Cook your way let others cook their way if you don't like the recipe keep it moving! And any good cook cooks food their way with their own flare it's boring making everything by "your" rules! Development your own style and let others show theirs! And btw there is a whole internet full of gumbo recipes with beans in it! Ouch I bet that hurt some of y'all!
This was a hit at a church benefit supper. Everyone loves it!
I mostly followed the recipe, but I added one tablespoon of Creole seasoning to give it more flavor. I personally cook roux (canola oil and flour) until it is a chocolate-brown - some people might cook it to a deeper color or cook it less for a lighter color - it all depends on your personal preferences. I also use 1/2 cup flour instead of 3/4 cup as I like that consistency better. All in all, a very good recipe. My family enjoyed having shrimp, chicken, ham & sausage all in one meal.
first time making gumbo. only thing think it needs about 1,1/2 lbs. of shrimp. IT is out of this world.
This is the easiest and tastiest gumbo I've made. I don't add ham nor a roasted chicken. I boil or brown chicken thighs. Awesome recipe.
This is not gumbo. How dare you destroy the good name and flavour and hisotry of Gumbo with this blatant, tasteless, worthless lie. YOU DO NOT PUT BEANS IN GUMBO. Your photo looks nothing like gumbo. You a horrid chef.
This is not the way of any real southern ladies idea of gumbo.Both of g.moms from the deep south.I was showed the real southern way to make gumbo,and this an't it.sorry you blew it.
We loved this recipe! I omitted the okra as my family doesn't care for it at all. We'll definitely be making it again.
My family loved this recipe. I did change it a bit because we're not fond of kidney beans; so I simply left those out and added more of our favorites. I also substituted the ham for chicken. All in all this is a great dish!
