I freaking love good Cajun food, yet somehow I’ve never made a roux before this. Here goes my first attempt at legit gumbo - more pics to follow

Heat is off, time to rest with a lid for a bit. I feel like Homer Simpson drooling over donuts waiting on this.

No joke my wife tells me this morning that she doesn’t like gumbo. 30 minutes into the roux I get a text from upstairs, “what are you cooking? It smells really good”.

It’s go time. And don’t judge my utensil game.

You did not ruin the roux. That looks legit.

Thanks guys! Not gonna lie the roux was a pain in the [censored]. People don’t lie when they say it takes a good hour of constant attention stir

I used avocado oil. I think the high smoke point helped me keep from burning it a few times. Lots of stirring and lots of heat management.

I think most people fail at making a proper roux when trying to use an electric stove. Like you said, proper heat management and quick response with gas!!
