I stumbled upon a video of his tv show.
"You know why de shicken cross de road, haaah? Really, to run away from dem Cajuns, I tell you dat right now, cause Cajun will eat mos’ any-ting, an dey love to cook shicken."
Cooking time is approximate since he says to "cook it a long time"…Id say 2 hours or more
Total time: 3 hours 15 minutes
Prep time: 1 hours 15 minutes
Cook time: 2 hours
Yield: 8 serving(s)
|3/4 cup olive oil|
|1 1/2 cups flour|
|1 cup onion, chopped|
|1 teaspoon minced garlic|
|2 cups cut up andouille sausages|
|2 -3 lbs chicken, cut into small size parts, including gizzards|
|2 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce|
|1 1/2 teaspoons louisiana hot sauce|
|2 1/2 teaspoons salt|
|4 cups water|
|4 cups sauterne white wine|
- "Firs’, you gotta make-a-roux, you know dat".
- In a cast iron dutch oven, combine oil and ï¬‚our on MED heat. Stir the mixture constantly and slowly until it browns.
- "You cook dat til you tink, dat’s gonna burn, but dat’s not what it did, see y’gots to cook dat til it’s like Dutch chocolate, y’see?".
- When the roux reaches it’s proper, aforementioned color, you add the onion. Once that onion has cooked clear looking, add your garlic, and whisk in 4 cups of water.
- Next you stir in the worcestershire and hot sauce, and add your andouille sausage.
- Now it’s time to add your chicken. "I put the pieces I like most of all, which is all the shicken, and the part what go over de fence last, I like dat.".
- Add your 4 cups of Sauterne wine, and 2.5 teaspoons of salt. Stir all this together and your gumbo is completed,.
- except for the cooking.
- " What you did with dis, now you cook dis today, an don’ serve it today, no. You put it in you icebox tonight, an tomorrow, bring it to a boil an let it simmer for about an hour, an den eat dat, cause it taste more batter den, hoooo, it always does.".
- Whether you can wait until the next day or not, cook it a long time until the chicken is ready to fall off the bone.
- Serve it with hot cooked rice and offer ï¬�le powder to you guests.
