Old-fashioned Cajun roux
BATON ROUGE - Chef KD showed how to make an old-fashioned roux gravy today for Tasty Tuesday.
He started with equal parts plain flour and oil, preheating the oil in a pan before adding the flour. Stir constantly until the mixture browns throughout.
Chef KD then added chopped onions and recommended simmering them with water for about 30 minutes. Once they're caramelized he adds meat such as boneless, skinless chicken, then simmers them covered for two hours to create the roux.
