Default Jambalaya

Tonight we had shrimp and sausage (venison ) jambalaya. My wife makes this and it's a great recipe. I thought I would share it.

Shrimp/Venison Sausage Jambalaya
INGREDIENTS
2 tbsp butter
1 onions, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped (I used red)
2 stalks celery, diced
1 lb link sausage sliced (venison preferred )
5 cloves garlic, minced
tbsp dried oregano
2 large dried bay leaves
pepper to taste
hot sauce to taste (I used 2 tbsp of Frank's hot sauce, but it depends on how spicy you want it)
2 cups basil marinara sauce (or canned tomatoes including the juice)
2 cups chicken stock, or water
1 cups long grain white rice (I used jasmine)
1 lb peeled, deveined large shrimp
1 tsp cajun spice
1 tbsp olive oil
green onions for garnish
INSTRUCTIONS
Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. In a large skillet or a dutch oven melt the butter and saute onion for 3 minutes until transparent. Add bell pepper, celery and chicken. Cook for 5 min or until chicken is no longer pink. Add garlic, oregano, bay leaves and pepper.
Add marinara sauce, chicken stock or water, rice and stir. Cook until it comes to a boil. Add hot sauce, I used about 2 tbsp of hot sauce and it was nice and spicy for me, but if you don't like it so hot, use less. Cover the dutch oven and place in the oven and bake for about 30 to 45 minutes until rice is cooked.
In the meant time, clean the shrimp and season with cajun spice. Add the olive oil to a small skillet and heat the oil, then add the seasoned shrimp and cook about a minute per side, until it's pink and a bit crisp. You can cut the shrimp into small pieces or use it as whole.
Add shrimp and green onions to the jambalaya and stir.
Serve warm

I was reading the 1 paragraph in the Instructions and kept bouncing back and forth to the ingredients thinking I missed something and wasn't seeing the quantity of chicken. Thanks

That's a New Orleans style jambalaya. Magnalites are the next best thing to cast iron for cooking a jambalaya in.

I cooked this, 110 gal jambalaya, for the A&M Alumni for the LSU/A&M game this past season. I hadn't finished steaming the rice when this was taken.
I had 240 lb of pork, chicken and sausage
120 lb onions
125 lb rice
6 lg containers of Tony's seasoning mix
1 gal of minced garlic
