  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Whisk in the flour to form a thick paste until smooth, about 3 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking, whisking constantly, until the flour turns a dark reddish-brown roux, about 15 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  3. Pour water into a slow cooker.
  4. Stir in the roux, sausage, chicken, okra, onion, bell pepper, celery, garlic, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper.
  5. Cover and cook on Low for 6 to 7 hours.

My family LOVES it! I use chicken broth instead of water & add rotel tomatoes.

I love this. It was full of great taste and consistency. I served it over white rice cooked with chicken broth. This is a "do over".

Although I don't make gumbo often, I can't imagine a better one. We all had seconds, including my six year old grandson. I served it with scalloped sweet potatoes and apples. It was a perfect me...
