Flour                 1 1/4 cups
Vegetable oil             1 cup
Cast Iron Pot

Should yield about 12-14 oz of dark roux


Add oil to the pot and introduce med-hi heat. Once heated, add flour slowly and stir continually until blended well. Stir until roux is med brown. This may take 15-20 min, do not rush as it can burn easily. Then remove from pot and place in a metal pan to cool down. Spread evenly in pan to allow quick cooling.


Making a roux can be tricky because once the roux is browned properly, it will continue to cook when fire is removed from the pot. It should be cooled as quickly as possible to prevent burning. Also use your vent hood early on as roux can leave distinct smell and maybe even a little nuisance smoke while cooking.
