Sausage and Chicken Gumbo


In this video, you’ll learn how to make a spicy sausage and chicken gumbo. Watch Chef John create a simple roux with flour and oil, cooking it slowly ... See moreuntil it turns a nutty brown color. You’ll learn about the “trinity”—three ingredients that are essential to this dish—and about the best kind of sausage for making gumbo. You’ll see how to build either a soupy or thick gumbo—whichever you prefer. Either way, follow Chef John’s simple instructions, and you’ll end up with a nutty brown, luxurious sauce. Add okra to thicken it, if you like, and serve over cooked rice with plenty of Louisiana hot sauce on hand. See a top-rated gumbo recipe.

This is great for the basics since this is a first time for me I will add other ingredients but I needed to get a feel of the actual cooking process what needed to be done when and how.
