Default Cajun jambalaya

Hey all, cooked up a big pot today. Figured I'd share. This is one of my favorite things to eat and cook. And it's easy. Perfect for a big family dinner, deer lease etc.

Ingredients-
3 yellow onions
1 bell pepper
1 celery stalk
4 tbsp garlic
Green onions

2-2.5lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
1.5lbs andouille
4 slices of bacon

2lbs rice
64oz chicken broth
1 beer
Worcestire few ounces

Some olive oil
Cajun seasoning. I used Ragin Blaze today.
Big cast iron or magnalite pot

Slice the bacon, chicken, sausage
Add it to the pot and brown it in some oil while you're slicing vegetables. Make sure to actually brown it. I season meat while cooking, get it spicy, the rice will soak up the heat.

Once meat is done, remove from pot.

Then cook down the trinity and garlic in a bit more oil.

Once trinity is cooked down add back in the meat.

Then add the rice, stir the rice in until it gets fully coated and a little browned.

After that add in the chicken broth, Worcestershire, and a beer. Busch light is my drink. Lower to a low heat, and let cook 20-30-40 minutes, lift lid, roll rice, make sure its not sticking, then repeat until it hits your desired consistency.

I serve it with hot buttered french bread.

I'm full as a tick, but I believe I could make some more room for a helping of
that jambalaya. Sure looks good.

Can't mix surf and turf!

This one is supposed to be a thick, hearty, filling meal. It's not a delicate frenchy recipe.

That pot looks very nice.

My brother works for a big Snubbing company as a mechanic. His cooking skills have him called by name from company men when a unit goes to their location just for the food he supplies. Which reminds me, I could use a big ole bowl of some about now. Now I’m hungry

The recipe I have been using is made with a roux. I need to try this one because I think the roux upsets my stomach. Looks amazing, thanks for sharing.

looks great brother ... this is pretty much how I cook mine.

Brown the meat, saute' the holy trinity, add the stock, season according to taste, add rice and let it cook slow and low.

hard to beat a good jambalaya

Depends how big of people they are!

This size will feed 6-8 normal people. 4-6 if they are all hungry cajuns after 19 beers in camp.

since you're a novice at cooking cajun food, we need pics to critique your meal

once you brown the meat and get the water & rice boiling, the rest is easy. Turn down the heat and let it cook slow n low, folding over the rice when needed.
