Just want to share a very simple south Louisiana dish. Many variations, but this is how I was taught. Take fresh pork sausage, smoke it long enough (I use pecan) to get the smoke flavor. Sauté onions, bell pepper, garlic, add tomatoes, j(fresh/crushed/diced), jalapeno. Simmer on low fire allowing tomatoes to reduce, cut sausage into size you want and add Be careful of salt content you add to sauce because sausage will add seasoning. I cook on low heat for about 2 hrs. Serve over rice. ENJOY!! You will not regret it. IMG_0462.jpeg

My great grandmother was from Crowley La, made the best Cajun. She served white rice with everything. I sure miss her cooking.
Good, authentic gumbo, etouffe and jambalaya are hard to beat. I’m a big crawfish fan and I like a really dark roux; that dirty penny color. Ha-yee!

You might be part Cajun BF lol!! And yes, for gumbo dark roux is a must in my and others opinion, whether seafood/okra or chicken/sausage. Some people think it’s to hot for gumbo, I cook it all year round.

Got tons of okra in the freezer, don’t want it sitting in there until winter

lol!! It seems as if you meet the major criteria: okra, crawfish, zydeco, blues. You just may well be.

That’s a pretty decent recipe. I guess we won’t kick you out of Louisiana yet.
