Good New Orleans Creole Gumbo | “A third-generation Cajun cook reveals gumbo secrets learned from her New Orleans mother and grandmother. Get your wrists limbered up, this is the real deal, with a slow cooked roux and gumbo file powder flavoring the shrimp, crab meat, and andouille sausage. Ay-eee!”
This is the real deal, folks. This is authentic gumbo. If you are not from South Louisiana, you may have never had real gumbo before, and you probably never heard of andouille. Andouille is a coarse-grained spicy smoked pork sausage used in gumbo to add heat and flavor. That’s gumbo: Simple ingredients. Deep flavor. Rich goodness. It’s an ideal dish for cooler weather.
