Creole Jambalaya

Ready in 1 hour

I love making Creole dishes any time, but especially around Mardi Gras. Here is one of our favorites to make !

"Once I finally located some proper sausage I could finally make this :) Very good... i only used 3 cups of rice because that's all my rice cooker can carry. So I lowered the sausage by 1/3. I also used cayenne pepper for the "red pepper"."

Preparation

Measure out 2 cups of rice and cook in a pot until cooked through. 2 cups of dry rice will yield to the 5 cups of cooked rice that you will need. The rice should take about 20 minutes to cook. When done, set aside to add to jambalaya later.

Check both sausage and country ham and see if it needs any further cooking. If not fully cooked already, saute in a saucepan for 5-10 minutes. Set aside. Chop all other ingredients and put aside. Once you start the jamabalaya, you add the ingredients quickly, so you should prep them all first.

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Once butter is melted, add the onion and soften. Add the green bell pepper, green onion and celery. Saute the vegetable mixture until nice and tender. Once tender, add the sausage, ham and the next 4 ingredients to the pan. Cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Stir in rice, cover, and cook for an addtional 30 minutes on low heat. Stir mixture occasionally. Serve hot with a sprinkle of fresh parsley on top.

Two cans of tomato sauce, extra red peppers, yellow bell and no ham. Perfection. I even added a photo for you guys.

This was a great base for me. I omitted the ham, next time would add shrimp. Also added generous amount of soy sauce and bit of olive oil. Easy, quick, and very yummy!
