Cajun Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya

This Jambalaya is a classic Cajun dish and when you make it and taste is, you will know why. The spice and the flavor will send you spiraling into a state of euphoria. Finishing the dish is the only escape. ENJOY!

Step 1: Start With a Hot Cast Iron Pot

Start with a hot cast iron or heavy bottom pot. Add oil to and begin browning the pork, then sausage

Step 2: Add Onions

Add the cut up onions until tranlucent then add bellpepper and seasoning as seen in the video.

Step 3: Add 1 Cup of Water

Add 1 cup of water and stir. At this point, the smell should make you want to dive into the pot, refrain from doing this as injury may occur.

Step 4: Cook for 1 Hour

Once you have cooked the meat and vegetables for 45 minute, then add shrimp. Cook for an additional 10 - 15 minutes. Add 4 cups of chicken stock and add 3 cups of uncooked rice. Bring to a boil rapidly. Once boiling, lower the heat to the lowest possible setting for 30-35 minutes.

Step 5: Finally

Your efforts are finally rewarded. ENJOY!!
