How to Make Gumbo for a crowd

Step-by-Step

  • 1boil a 3lb chicken and de-bone and shred after its cooled. i usually boil and debone the chicken and chop all the veggies the day before so all i have to do is throw everything together the next day.save your chicken broth. also slice the smoked sausage the day before.
  • 2chop onions and celery and sweat them in butter til translucent. slice the smoked sausage and brown for about 5 minutes.
  • 3in a big stock pot (I use a 16 quart one) start making the roux using the oil and flour. cook on low heat stirring constantly to prevent burning till its a dark copper color. This takes about 20=30 minutes. DON"T RUSH IT!!! If it burns, throw it out and start over .
  • 4When you have finished making the roux, stir in the sweated onion and celery and the garlic.
  • 5Add 3 to 4 cups of chicken stock and stir till it blends in. Then add the fire roasted tomatoes and tomato sauce. Keep at a low simmer.
  • 6Drain the grease off the smoked sausage and stir in. Add the shrimp, okra and chicken.Add chicken stock as needed to bring it to the desired consistency. We like ours a little thick.
  • 7Add the Tony Chachere's. You can add more if not spicey enough.Add salt to taste to bring out the flavors. Let simmer till the shrimp and okra are done. About 5-10 minutes. Enjoy over rice. Makes about 8-10 quarts.
