Sausage, shrimp, okra and rice provide all the great flavors of a classic Louisiana style gumbo in this recipe but with the ease of the crock pot.

This is a great gumbo recipe! If you didn't know better you would think a Cajun cook stood over a stove all day making this for you. It has all the true elements of "real" gumbo but with the simplicity of using a crock pot. VERY good recipe and very easy.

Okay, I have a question. I've followed the recipe and it says "add all ingredients except shrimp, rice AND water. Do we not add any LIQUIDS to the crockpot? please respond as soon as possible, as I am preparing it right now m

CDKitchen Staff Reply:
No, you do not need any additional liquid. The juices from the tomatoes are enough for that part of the recipe. The crock pot will create steam which increases the liquid so you do not need to add additional.

My store was out of the pre-cooked shrimp in a bag so I had to buy raw. I was going to just cook it first then add it as directed but instead I put it in (thawed) about 30 minutes before serving and turned the heat to high and it was fully cooked (cooked through and not overcooked either). I liked the combination of the sausage with the shrimp.

This was my first recipe and it turned out wonderfully. My wife, who usually won't eat shrimp cooked in any recipe, ate it and enjoyed it. My teenage son wants me to cook it again tomorrow. It was a smash-hit. I will definitely cook it for my co-workers.

THIS IS THE BEST SITE I'VE FOUND!!!! BRAVO..SOMEONE HAS FINALLY PUT IT ALL TOGETHER.
HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR A GUMBO RECIPE (SHRIMP GUMBO)TO FEED A LARGE CROWD OF 200. FOUND THE CHICKEN RECIPE AND MADE THE CONVERSION BY TYPING IN "200" AND IT CAME RIGHT UP. NOW LOOKING FOR THE SHRIMP RECIPE. GOT ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS? DO YOU NORMALLY USE SAUSAGE IN THE SHRIMP GUMBO, OR IS THAT CUSTOMARILY ONLY USED IN THE CHICKEN RECIPE? PLEASE ADVISE....
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS WEBSITE. YOU ARE APPRECIATED!!!!

I'm surprised to get such good results with a gumbo from a crockpot, but this was really good and actually had flavor.
