Uncle Dank's Gumbo
This was the first gumbo recipe I ever tried to make and it's been my go-to recipe ever since I discovered it in 2006. The resulting stew is rich, thick, complex and absolutely delicious. I've made it for family functions and potlucks and it's always been a hit. I've made a few alterations over the years that work out well for me. The major change is I sautee the vegetables and meats in steps 1 and 2 in a separate pan and make the roux in the stock pot. Once the roux is made and the water and veg are heating to a boil I dab the excess oil from the bottom of the pan, crank the heat up and deglaze with a mixture of 1/4 cup broth and 1/4 cup wine or sherry, using a fork to scrape off the little browned bits on the bottom of the pan and stirring it around to leech out the flavor. Then I pour it through a sieve into the stock pot. I find this adds just a little bit more complexity to the flavor of the final product.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
