Teet's Famous Hen, Smoked Sausage, and Tasso Gumbo
You will need the following:
1 hen or fryer cut into pieces
10 oz. of Kary's Roux
1 lb of Teet's Smoked Pork Sausage
1/2 lb of Teet's Smoked Pork Tasso
1/2 cup of parsley, chopped
2 cups of rice
1 Smoked Turkey Wing, cut (secret ingredient)
6 boiled eggs
Halfway fill the gumbo (stock) pot with water, and boil. Once water is boiling, reduce heat to medium, add the roux and stir continuously for 10 minutes, until dissolved. Do not let the water and roux boil over, the roux will foam, that is normal, just reduce heat and stir. Bring roux back to a boil and add onions, smoked meats and chicken. and stir every 15 minutes. Add green onions and parsley after about 30 minutes of boiling. If you are using a fryer, you will only need to cook it for about an hour, do not over boil the chicken because it will fall to pieces. If you are using a hen, boil the hen for about 2 hours or until cooked thoroughly.
While the gumbo is cooking I usually boil some eggs on the side. Once they are boiled I peel them and drop them in the gumbo in the last 10 minutes. Believe me, it may sound gross or weird but you will never eat a gumbo without it again. A potato salad is a delicious side when eating a gumbo, so go ahead and make your favorite recipe!
Serve over cooked rice and enjoy.
