well I think I had gumbo in mind when I started.... I have no clue what the end result is called...but it SURE IS TASTY!
Tried some of my own Yankee Gumbo
I didn't get pics making it... made it between making supper last night... camera handling wasn't an option.
apprx. ingredients....shot from the hip
2 lbs. of Andoullie sausage (sliced)
1 whole stick of spicy peperoni (diced)
1&1/2 lbs. of self smoked chicken breasts (shredded)
a 1&1/2 lb. bag of large shrimp/mudbugs (cut to 1" pieces)
2 cups of salt pork ... it fried down toabout 1 cup (cubed)
5 large Jalepenos (diced)
a couple handfulls of okra
one large green pepper (diced)
2 large onions (diced)
about 10 cloves of fresh garlic (diced & some sliced)
around 4 cups of canned chicken broth
a couple large handfulls of rice
a heaping handful of barley
1 cup of regular sugar
about 2 cups or more of celery (sliced)
about 2 cups of butter/flour roux (homebuilt)
misc. dashes and dabs of pepper, salt, Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce, chili powder, liquid smoke, etc...
boiled the andoullie, fried the onions, garlic, peppers, salt pork & pepperoni before mixing in
let it all go overnight in my 2 large slow cookers... added rice barley and shrimp this morning.... just had some........mmmmMMMMMM
