    5. 5
      Chop meat.
    6. 6
      Make roux by putting vegetable oil in a large, heavy saucepan, then adding flour and whisking to mix. On low heat, stirring frequently, cook until roux thickens and becomes a rich mahogany color. Remove from heat and set aside.
    7. 7
      Meanwhile, bring stock to a boil in a separate saucepan.
    8. 8
      Once you are done with the roux, melt butter in a frying pan and add onions. Cook until they become translucent. Then add peppers, chilli, and celery. Cook about 5 minutes. Then Cajun spices, celery salt, and dried basil.
    9. 9
      While veggies are cooking, whisk boiling stock into roux, return to heat, and simmer about 5 minutes. Stir frequently.
    10. 10
      Add cooked veggies to roux and simmer another 15 minutes.
    11. 11
      Add meat and cook another few minutes. Serve over rice.
    12. 12
      Note: seafood tends to cook quickly. Pork or chicken will probably require pre-cooking. Use your judgment.
