    Made this last week. It was okay. Will try it again and add chicken and okra. It was just okay, but I think it was me not the recipe.

    Great Dish! I left out the Tabasco and used a little less cayenne but it still had a nice kick to it to go along with great flavor!

    Delicious! Followed the recipe closely; cut back on the cayenne and used homemade veggie broth instead of chicken broth. Had a good kick to it.

    It was delish and easy to make. you definitely need to prepare everything ahead of time, because once you start it just quickly picks up. The only down time is at the end when you let it simmer.

    We are still waiting to try it because the rice isn’t done yet but I tried a spoonful of everything and it was quite DELICIOUS!!! I definitely recommend making this gumbo!

    Roux was easier to make than expected. I added some shredded chicken and crab meat and okra. I could have added more spices due to the extra ingredients, but still came out very tasty

    This recipe was a hit! The tips in the blog post were very helpful. This recipe took me about 2 hours. The roux took me 30 mins. I made a few changes. For prep, I also seared the sausage for about 3 mins and I seasoned the shrimp with salt, pepper, and creole and cooked until it started to turn a little pink. In the gumbo, I added two tablespoons of creole seasoning and a teaspoon of old bay in addition to the others seasonings listed. Next time I would probably add a little less cayenne. I also added crab meat. I’m not a big fan of okra so I was ok with it not being in this recipe but will try adding it next time.

    It was a little too salty! Be careful with the Creole seasoning.....

    It turned out great! Super flavorful , filling, and authentic. But I will say, I had to make some major adjustments - the spice amounts should be cut in half, and even then it turned out super spicy so I can’t even imagine what 2 full tablespoons would do (and I have a decently high spice tolerance). I’d also recommend a much lower heat and shorter cooking time for the roux step if you’re using a cast iron skillet... mine cooked to a dark brown within less than 5 minutes on a medium high heat. Also the cooking time for the veggies before you add the garlic doesn’t need to be so long at all, 5 minutes really does the trick. Still loved the flavor and everything turned out great, maybe it’s just personal preference on the flavor and cooking times?

    Takes a while but is totally worth it. Skipped the Tabasco as we are not too big on super spicy food. Delicious recipe!

    Awesome recipe I had to toss out my first batch of roux due to it burning so I substituted tablespoon of butter for part of the oil measurement I stirred constantly the roux mix for 20 minutes turned out perfectly. I would highly recommend this recipe!

    Did it AWESOME! I made this with peanut oil for the ruex, and I skipped the bell peppers. I love bell peppers but in this recipe I believe the peppers would detract from the flavor.

    It was absolutely delicious. I made it exactly as the recipe called with the exception that I added okra with the other vegetables. It was perfect!
