easier roux

one cup flour, one cup oil, whisk in a cast iron pot and put uncovered in a 350 degree oven for 1 1/2 hours stirring every 30 minutes. impossible to burn and gives you the freedom to do other things whilst your roux cooks. comes out very dark tan. if you want darker, just drop on stove top and finish off for another 15 minutes or so. easy peasy.

Postman Try Tony's Instant Roux, it's a powder and the best I've ever used. Walmart is about the only place I've been able to find it. Easy to use and very good.

make roux isn't difficult, just standing and whisk/stirring is a pain w/ a black skillet

I made a quick chicken and sausage gumbo on Friday using Douget's and have no complaints. I plan to use the second half of the jar to whip up some seafood gumbo this weekend.

notthatdeep I've been making roux in the microwave for several years now and can get it a lot darker without burning than I can on stovetop. On stovetop I used to chicken out when it started getting iffy. in the micro, I just shorten the time between stirs and darken incrementally until it gets where I want it. I heat it in pyrex and when ready pour into my cook pot with the veggies and stir like he77 until they are soft before adding stock. Had very good results. Never used store bought roux.

Usually takes me about 8 minutes. The top if it will be much lighter color than the bottom while cooking, so stir often towards the end.
