Awesome days and cool nights!
1 1/2 cups oil
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups onion, diced
3/4 cup green bell & red peppers, diced
1/2 cup celery, diced
1 pound andouille sausage, sliced
1 gallon duck stock
1 bay leaf
1 pinch of thyme
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
3 to 4 shakes of Louisiana hot pepper sauce
1 can Ro*tel® tomatoes
1/2 pound duck meat, cut into cubes
1/2 pound boneless, skinless chicken, cut into cubes Salt and pepper, to taste
To a heavy-bottomed pan or Dutch oven, add oil and cook over medium heat. When oil is hot, add flour all at once, and stir quickly to combine. Cook, stirring constantly, until roux has turned dark brown. This process should not be rushed.
Add onion, bell pepper, celery and andouille to browned roux, and cook until onions are wilted and transparent, about 5 minutes. Add duck stock to mixture, and stir quickly with a whisk, bringing to a boil. Add bay leaf, thyme, Worcestershire sauce, pepper sauce and tomatoes. Add duck and chicken meats. Reduce heat and cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Adjust seasonings by adding salt and pepper to taste.
