How To Make smoked sausage gumbo

  • 1
    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.
  • 2
    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.
  • 3
    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.
