Willow Creek's Jambalaya
Mr. Wonderful spent a great deal of his Air Force training time in the southern United States. While serving in that part of the country he developed a real taste for the local cuisine. Here’s my interpretation of New Orleans Jambalaya.
There are a few requirements when cooking for Mr. Wonderful. One of which is meat, lots and lots of meat.
Chop prosciutto and slice sausage
Place sausage and prosciutto in a dutch oven over medium heat and cook until browned slightly
Stir in garlic, onion and green pepper. I dice my peppers and onions and place them in freezer bags and freeze them when I am harvesting and processing things from my garden. This makes recipes like this faster and so easy.
You’ll also need rice, carrots, tomatoes and chicken broth. I use brown rice but regular long grain white rice will work just fine as well.
Add rice and carrots to the dutch oven
Pour in tomatoes, chicken broth and spices
Bring to a boil, cover, and place in a 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes or until rice is cooked. Stir in shrimp in the last five minutes of cooking and return to the oven.
Serve with shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream if desired.
