This is one of my husband's favorites. Always a crock-pot full for him to take up north hunting.

6 quart crock-pot full


30 Min


5 Hr


2 can(s)
chicken broth
2 can(s)
diced tomatoes, with spices (undrained)
1/4 c
all purpose flour
2 pkg
polish sausage, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

3 or more
ribs of celery, chopped
1 pkg
baby carrots, sliced
4 tsp
dried oregano
4 tsp
dried thyme
red cayenne pepper, to your taste
white rice, or choice of rice

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine broth and tomatoes in slow cooker. Sprinkle flour evenly over bottom of small skillet. Cook over high heat without stirring 3 to 4 minutes or until flour begins to brown. Reduce heat to medium; stir flour about 4 minutes. Stir in until smooth. Carefully whisk flour mixture into slow cooker.
Add sausage, onion, bell pepper, celery, carrots, oregano, thyme and red pepper to slow cooker. Cover and cook on low 4 1/2 to 5 hours or until juices are thickened.
About 30 minutes before gumbo is ready to serve, prepare rice. **Hint- I buy individual serving bags of rice, that way there is nothing wasted. Serve gumbo over rice. For a special touch sprinkle chopped parsley over each serving.
