While many ingredients in a Louisiana jambalaya are subject to variation, rice is essential. This one-pot dish features tender, boneless short ribs, which imbue the rice with a rich, meaty flavor. The finished jambalaya should be moist but not soupy. Have hot sauce available for those who prefer it spicy.


2 lbs boneless beef short ribs
4 teaspoons Creole or Cajun seasoning
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 Onion; chopped
1 green bell pepper; chopped
1/2 cup celery; chopped
2 cloves garlic; minced
1 can tomatoes; drained
4 cups reduced-sodium beef broth; divided
2 bay leaves
2 teaspoons fresh thyme; chopped
2 cups long-grain white rice
8 green onions; thinly sliced
1/4 cup Chopped fresh parsley

Original recipe makes 8



1. Heat oven to 350°F. Cut ribs into 2-inch pieces. In small bowl, stir together Creole seasoning and pepper; sprinkle over ribs.

2. Heat oil in heavy large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat until hot. Add ribs in batches; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until browned, turning once. Place on plate.

3. Reduce heat to medium. Add onion, bell pepper, celery and garlic; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until softened, stirring occasionally. Return ribs and any accumulated juices to pot; add tomatoes, 2 cups of the broth, bay leaves and thyme. Increase heat to medium-high; bring to a boil.

4. Cover pot; place in oven. Bake 1 1/2 hours or until meat is tender, stirring halfway through.

5. Remove from oven; return pot to stovetop. Uncover and stir in remaining 2 cups broth; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir in rice, green onions and parsley; cover and return to oven. Bake 30 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Let stand, covered, 5 minutes.

We used more cajun spice and lower sodium beef broth. It is a good winter meal.
