    I gave Boudin a try this weekend.  I have never had it before so I do not know how to compare it.  I did change the recipe up a bit.  I used some leftover pulled pork and brisket.  My goal was to make boudin without going to the grocery and I did.  Overall I would say it tasted a lot like hash.  I think next time I would add a couple of bay leaves to the boil and maybe some sage to the grind.

    2 lbs of pulled pork

    1 lb of brisket

    3 celery stalks

    1 whole white onion

    1/2 read onion

    1/2 head of garlic

    1 tsp red pepper flakes

    1 tsp oregno

    1 tsp parsley

    1 tsp tyme

    1/2 tsp cayenne  ( I would have used more but planned to share with others that are not as crazy about hot stuff as I)

    I boiled the meat in chicken stock for about an hour then added the veggies.


    I started to soak the casings while the meat was cooking.


    Boiling the rice the last hour of the meat cooking.


    I took al of the meat and veggies out of the pot and reserved the stock


    I let the stock cool in the freezer for a few mins.  (about 15)  The fat separated. Sorry no pict on that one.


    I added the seasonings to the meat and veggies


    Grind it all up.  Large plate one time through.


    I added the stock that I reserved earlier and mixed until it had a "pudding texture".


    Added the rice and mixed well.


    Fry test. 


    Stuffed.


    The recipe says to steam for Ten minutes then grill.  I went straight to the grill.  I will try the steaming first next time.

    Oh and a few casings busted while stuffing so I sacrificed them on the grill.


    Grilled potatoes, boudin, and salad.  Yum.


    Fried up for breakfast.


    With some home cured bacon.


    Thanks for looking.
