One Pot Gumbo

A delicious gumbo recipe cooked up in one-pot.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Servings 12


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ lb. Hillshire Farm® Polska Kielbasa sliced
  • ½ lb. Hillshire Farm® Smoked Sausage sliced
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ c. olive oil
  • ½ c. flour
  • 48 oz chicken broth
  • 2 bottle dark beer
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes leave in the liquid.
  • 1 7 oz can diced chili drained
  • 1 tab or so hot sauce
  • 1 cup celery diced
  • ¼ cup creole seasoning
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 bunch fresh parsley
  • 1 lb. fresh shrimp peeled, de-tailed, and de-veined


  • In a large soup pot saute the onion and sliced sausage in the 1 tablespoon olive oil for about 4 minutes on medium heat.
  • Add the garlic and saute for another minute.
  • Push the meat mixture to the side and add the additional olive oil and flour. Whisk as well as possible. Stir into the meat mixture.
  • Stir in ¼ cup of the chicken broth to keep the flour from clumping. Then add the remaining chicken broth, diced tomatoes, chilis, hot sauce, diced celery, creole seasoning, sugar, parsley, and salt & pepper to taste.
  • Bring to boil, cover, turn down to simmer, and simmer for 30 minutes stirring often. (Taste and add additional seasoning if desired. Often I add additional creole seasoning.)
  • Add the beer and shrimp and stir. Cover and simmer another 10 minutes.
  • Let cool and serve.


Gumbo, like chili, is highly customizable based on your personal heat preference. Add additional creole seasoning for more heat. Or throw in a diced jalapeno pepper. If you find that you've made it TOO spicy add an additional bottle of beer or serve the gumbo with a splash of cream.
