No-Fumble Slow Cooker Gumbo

Gumbo is a staple of New Orleans cuisine — in fact, it’s the Louisiana state food — and after trying it, you’ll see why! The trick to nailing this stick-to-your-ribs dish is all about developing a dark roux (a thickener made of flour fried in fat), which amps up the rich and savory notes. Eckrich® Original Skinless Smoked Sausage Rope, shrimp, and a mixture of vegetables simmer for hours in a slow cooker for a deeply flavorful game-day stew.
