Jambalya dinner (with J-Views)

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

My neighbor's daughter had her wedding Saturday,  they had the rehearsal dinner Friday night. My wife and I offered to cook a Jambalaya for the rehearsal dinner to help out. The groom actually insisted on paying for it, after discussing it with the wife, we offered to make it a there wedding gift…… They were both very happy to accept the gift. We had about 30 people planning on eating, but I wanted to make sure that we had plenty enough food for everyone. So I cooked enough for 50 people. After everyone finished eating we wound up with about a gallon bag of left over…..Just about a perfect amount…….BTW, this was my first time cooking by myself. I have assisted cooking many many times over the years, but this was my first solo attempt, I have to say, I was very pleased how it came out…….. Here are the pictures………

Clean and re-oiled my small pot.....

Browning sausage......

Browning pork......

Browning chicken......

Browning the onions and bell peppers.......(Here is where I missed taking pictures of putting in the Mild Roytel Tomato's, Cream of mushroom soup and adding the meat back in .......)

Official taste tester says....." It's good "........

One last fluff to make it pretty.........

And this is what you get.........MMmmmmmm......

 

I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as they did the Jambalaya ......ShoneyBoy......

Great post dude and this from a Cajun country boy What knows his jumbalaya.  I do mine exactly like that only different.:biggrin:  I season my pork pieces the day before and let them marinate over night making what we call griods.  brown the pork first remove it then brown the onions and sausage together in the pork drippins.  This builds the brown gravy.  all back in the pot and continue.  I've got lots of pictures videos and blog posts about cooking a 20 gallon jumbalays but this forum wont let me post them.

I am at work on the boat so I don't have access to my pictures  since I cant post links this is best I can do.  Sorry

Been too long since I made some jambalaya!

 

Hmmm?

 

Thinkin andoille, ham, and a third meat yet to be determined?  Shrimp if I feel rich, but maybe chicken? A little of each?

 

Thanks for the post!

 

Good luck and good smoking.

Nice job Shoney. Wasn't it a beautiful day for it too. I thought all day, today would've been great for a cooking.

 

Who's that sauve and debonair fella ya got holding the canoe paddle?

 

I been putting it off but you just pushed me over the edge, the store room with the pots and pans gets cleaned out this week. I'll see what I have still over there.

 

Great job, ya did yaself proud! I bet the future newlyweds were happy with your offering.
