Separated Gumbo - Help Please!

NOLAsylvie | Apr 5, 2009 08:15 PM

I'm making gumbo for the third time and I started by making a very dark roux (chocolate color). Subsequently I added chicken stock (instead of water as the recipe suggested), but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. My gumbo looks terrible - it's all separated and the roux is like slimy ribbons, instead of a unicolor gumbo. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! I've been cooking this for hours!
