3 tablespoons flour 3 tablespoons oil 1/2 pound smoked sausage, cut into 1/2 inch slices 2 cups frozen cut okra 1 large onion, chopped 1 large green bell pepper, chopped 3 cloves garlic, minced 1/4 teaspoon ground red cayenne pepper 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1 can (14.5 ounce size) diced tomatoes, undrained 1 package (12 ounce size) frozen shelled deveined cooked medium shrimp, rinsed 1 1/2 cup uncooked regular long-grain white rice 3 cups water
In small saucepan, combine flour and oil; mix well. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium; cook, stirring constantly, about 10 minutes or until mixture turns reddish brown. Place flour-oil mixture in 3 1/2 to 4 quart Crockpot.
Stir in all remaining ingredients except shrimp, rice and water. Cover; cook on low setting for 7-9 hours. When ready to serve, cook rice in water as directed on package. Meanwhile, add shrimp to gumbo mixture in crockpot; mix well. Cover; cook on low setting for additional 20 minutes. Serve gumbo over rice.
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 Note: 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.
