New Orleans Style Gumbo #FridayFeast

Man, these days need to slow down!  I had no idea it was Friday until not too long ago...
Sorry for posting the FRIDAY FEAST late, but better late than never! 
 Hope you are in the mood to head to New Orleans, as I received this in my email.
This is from Ocean Catering Company.

I have not tried this yet and I will not be trying it until after the baby comes...
Let me know if you make it and what you think about it!  



New Orleans style Gumbo 
  •  Ingredients
  • 1lb. smoked, pulled chicken meat (about 1 fat chicken)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 pound smoked, Andouille sausage, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 5 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 8 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 3 stalks celery chopped
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun Seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons Gumbo File
  • 1/4 bunch flat leaf parsley, stems and leaves, coarsely chopped, plus chopped leaves for garnish
  • 4 cups beef stock (can be made from soup base)
  • 1 (14-ounce can) stewed tomatoes with juice
  • 2 cups sliced okra
  • 4 green onions, sliced, white and green part
  • 1lb small shrimp, peeled & deveined
  • 1/2lb steamed crawfish tails
  • 1/2lb steamed crab meat ( I like to use the “Special” but you can substitute whichever you like)

Directions
  • Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the flour over the oil, add 2 tablespoons of margarine and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until brown, about 10 minutes. This is roux.  Let the roux cool.
  • Return the Dutch oven to low heat and melt the remaining 3 tablespoons margarine. Add the onion, garlic, green pepper and celery and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Add Worcestershire sauce, Cajun seasoning, Gumbo File, salt and pepper, to taste and a 1/4 bunch parsley. Cook, while stirring frequently, for 10 minutes.
  • Add 4 cups beef stock, stirring constantly. Add the chicken and sausage. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 45 minutes. 
  • Add tomatoes and okra. Cover and simmer for 1 hour.
  • Just before serving add the green onions, shrimp, crawfish and crab meat. Simmer 10 more minutes and then add chopped parsley.
  • Serve over white rice.
