You have to start with a roux. In a large gumbo pot, make a roux with oil and flour.
Stir constantly until the roux turns the color of peanut butter. Add onions, celery, and bell pepper to wilt veggies and to slow browning. Add chicken broth and meat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook on low for 2 hours. Eat over rice with crusty french bread. (It will even taste better on day 2 🙂
1/2 cup wesson oil
1 cup flour
4 quarts chicken broth
1 large onion, chopped
1 bell pepper
2 stalks celery
chicken, sausage, goose or duck or any combo
Serve over hot fluffy rice.
