"The flavor was different but good. It was nicely balanced between the sweet from the root beer and the spicy from the blackening mix. I used a nice Porterhouse steak and marinated overnight in root beer. Then I put together the spice rub using all the spices except for the file powder. (which I didnt have) One negative though- after searing it in ""
"This gumbo was delicious. Try to use the freshest veggies you can find and the best quality bacon as well; it really will make a difference. Also, be sure that your potatoes are all roughly the same size to ensure even cooking. I cooked my roux using butter instead of veg oil and it made no difference. Easy recipe and perfect for a cold/ rainy day""
