This is the greatest tasting soup I've EVER had!!! It was wonderful!! It won 1st place at the state fair, and everyone I know loves it! I have NO idea why people are insulting it, maybe they're just jealous! Anyways, it was GREAT!!!!
Worst recipe of its type I've ever tried. Tasted watery and bland. Hot sauce did nothing for it. It's not worth even trying to improve this loser. Toss it out, please.
what an insult!! This is not gumbo, don't be fooled!! I am from LA. NO ONE here puts TOMATOES in their gumbo, might get run off to the woods if so.
To give you a back ground on gumbo, it is a MEAT stew served over rice. It never has tomatoes in it. I have been to many states and outside of La, gumbo is trashed into some sorta gross dish. The meat is what is changed in it........it never contains carrots and stuff since it is a MEAT stew.
This recipe was great! I am a soup fanatic and will definitely make this again. I used 6 cups of chicken stock and 2 cups of water and ended up with a spicy, simple to make treat. If you don't like things spicy, you might want to cut down on the hot pepper sauce. Hubby didn't care for the spiciness, so I may try this next time, though I liked it as is. Thanks for this recipe!
I really didn't want to make this recipe because of the okra, i tried okra one time and hated it. That was until i had my first spoonful of this gumbo, I loved it. I knew my kids were going to hate it because it had to many vegetables. I came home the next day, and the pot was empty...We love love love this recipe. Believe me three hours is worth it.
This is a fantastic, hot soup that loves up your insides. As has been so eloquently established, this is not a true "gumbo," hence the added "soup" in the title. But who cares. If it's original, I applaud Mr. Schaefer. I made a few changes, using tomatoes, chicken broth and Sweet Sue canned chicken breast to speed it up a bit. Delicious!
I made this in a crockpot and used 6 cups ck. broth and 2 cups water. Maybe it was the crockpot, but the pasta was chewy and the soup itself was so-so. We added creole seasoning to spice it up.
It's "Really Quick!" in the sense that I spend only a few minutes putting it together in a pot to cook it. It does take hours to stew, however, it takes only minimal time to make.
