This is now a staple in my house. Before even trying the recipe, I read all the reviews and took hints from them. I also added a can of diced tomatoes, doubled the Cajun seasoning and used Chicken Broth instead of water. Instead of diced ham, i used Andouille Sausage. I prefer to use Lima Beans in the recipe but my husband does not like them, so i stuck with the Okra because my family doesn't mind them. I do find the original recipe to be a bit bland but thanks to the many suggestions that I took from the reviews, it is now one of my family's favorite dishes. We often top it with sour cream. If you choose to use andouille, I would not use the Cajun andouille AND double the Cajun seasoning, we found it a bit too spicy for our tastes. I read an earlier review that said the rice was not done and next time they would use instant rice but the recipe actually calls for instant rice so I had no problem there.

I live in New Orleans and was looking for quick recipes and saw this. Easy recipe but needs perking up. My suggestions are 1: sprinkle ham before using with ground red pepper this creates what we call " Tasso " . 2. Instead of using Chopped red bell pepper , unless you just have to have . If you have to then chop fine only what fits in curled palm of hand. Use instead a mixture of green onions, celery, and only enough green bell pepper you can chop into palm of hand. Palm of hand measurement is used for bell peppers only . Never ever use minced or powdered onion . Use 1/4 of a real one or 2x the amount of onion to amount of celery, if not using green onion. I also recommend using 1/4 tsp. of the fresh jar minced onions from refrigerator section, rather than garlic powder. This is what we call " Trinity " . Trinity is used in almost every creole and Cajun meal. Be brave and splash Tabasco or hot sauce in mixture as well. 3. Usually we don't use ham and sausage together unless making jambalaya, so choose one or the other for gumbo. I would also add 1 can hand smashed stewed tomatoes, and 1 whole bay leaf to mixture. If you don't like okra you may leave out. . If leave out okra sprinkle small amount of " file " on gumbo soup only as the thickenern at end of cooking as your gumbo thickener. If using okra never use " file " . Gumbo is a thick soup served over rice . 4. If using sausage don't use andouille unless you have tasted it before and like it. It has an unusual taste that unless you are from around here you probably won't like. Instead I recommend a sausage from your area that you like. IMPORTANT: Don't use minced onion period ! Use the reall thing. Lastly, don't make this with instant rice , cook rice and gumbo separately . Cook long grain white rice or jasmine rice. If you cook the two separately you may cook gumbo itself on stove top. Add shrimp just 5- 10 minutes before removed from stove top to keep them from being too chewey. Good Luck !

Great meal. I added tomatoes in it as well as suggested and used sausage instead of ham. I also seasoned the shrimp and sausage while cooking them. I added onions and seasoned them in the skillet with the sausage before combining. Perfect with cornbread.

This recipe was not bad. I will add a can of diced tomatoes and a bit more cajun spice. My rice did not fully cook (?) and I didn't vary on anything. Maybe I will use instant rice instead next time. I do not like okra so I used leaf spinach instead to get the benefit of the dark greens. Also I will use small shrimp, not medium. Overall, it wasn't too bad; the undercooked rice was a bummer. Will make my changes and try again.

I had to change it up a bit due to child being vegetarian so I used Cream of Shrimp Soup, a small bag of seafood mix, and of course the shrimp. It came out absolutely incredible! I am already making it again this coming week. I served it inside of cored out bread (circle) and it just was extremely awesome. Thanks for the recipe.
