I made this last year for Christmas and everyone liked it. I used 2C. broth, 2 C. clam juice and 2 C. water, instead of water and bullion. I also added a small can of oysters, and subbed chopped tomato for stewed. The chicken breast was dry so this year, I will either use thigh meat or buffalo size wings. OVerall, it was awesome!
Eerily similar to Paula Dean's version. By eerily I mean exactly the same.
This is the first time I've ever tried making gumbo (at my husband's request - it's his favorite) so I wanted to find a recipe that was both true to tradition and easy enough to dulplicate. This is it! The family loved this gumbo! The only changes I made were to add a large can of diced tomatoes (undrained) in place of the stewed tomatoes; and I used herb-seasoned chicken sausage in place of pork sausage. For the salt-to-taste, I used Penzey's Special Seasoned Sea Salt - and that added a great flavor as well! Thank you so much for this recipe msjena! (You've made my husband's day! :-)
we left out the okra, since we couldnt find any. and added alittle cyanne powder for some extra spice! it was very yummy!
This was very good and very easy to make. The only thing I changed was that I used diced tomatoes instead of stewed, hot italian sausage, and no shrimp. Had my 13-year old son help me make it! Thanks for the great recipe.
This gumbo is delicious! I added rice also, to thicken it up some. Perfectly thick, rich, flavor is sooo good! The only thing I changed was that I used hot italian sausage cause it's what I had on hand, 2 cups water/2 bouillon cubes, 1 can beef broth, and added cayenne cause we like spicy here! 5 stars, thanks!
My family really enjoyed this...a little thicker than the gumbo we were used to in the south, but tastes just as good. Thanks for a great recipe. I did add some cajun seasoning, a bay leaf, and just regular beef broth. But this recipe is great all on it's own!
This recipe was very much a hit in my family! My fiance is never quite sure about trying new recipes, but this one got rave reviews. All of our bowls were spotless after eating. The only thing I added was a bit of file powder.
