Duck And Sausage Gumbo

Duck And Sausage Gumbo

  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 3 hours
  • Yield: 6 to 8 servings



  • Heat the duck fat (do not allow it to get so hot that it begins to smoke) in a large, heavy pot over medium heat.  Stir in the flour and cook, stirring slowly and constantly, to make a roux the color of chocolate, 10 to 15 minutes. Add the vegetables, garlic and seasoning. Cook, stirring, until the vegetables are very soft, 8 to 10 minutes. Add the bay leaves and smoked sausage. Slowly stir in 9 cups of the broth, add the thyme, and bring to a boil. Add the roasted duck, reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook, stirring occasionally, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Thin the gumbo with addtional broth if desired. Stir in the green onions and serve the gumbo in bowls with rice.
