  • Cooking Time: 100
  • Servings: 10-12
  • Preparation Time: 120

Ingredients

  • 1 lbs cubed boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 pound cubed boneless boston butt pork roast
  • 1 pound sliced smoked sausage
  • 4 ribs of celery diced
  • 4 white onions peeled and diced
  • 4 bell peppers cleaned and diced
  • 4 cups extra long grain white rice
  • 1 bundle green onions
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • garlic powder
  • white pepper
  • ground cayenne

Directions

  • in a heavy bottom dutch oven (preferrably 8 qt. black iron pot) add cubed pork and fry meat till it starts to brown and render fat.
  • add cubed chicken and stir into pork and fry untill light brown
  • add sliced sausage and fry until all meats are dark golden brown, moisture is cooked out and the fats and meat begin sticking to the bottom of the pot.
  • It is important to stir but let your meat caramelize and stick to the bottom of the pot but not burn.
  • once your meats are caramelized use a slotted spoon and remove the caramelized meats and set aside.
  • turn heat up to med-hi and add all of your diced vegetables except the green onions.
  • Friy the vegetables on the oil left from the meat. once the vegetables begin sweating, it will pull the "Gratin" color from the bottom of the pot . continue to saute until all vegetables are completely wilted and extremely dark (almost black) in color.
  • add your meats back to your sauteed vegetables.
  • add in 7-1/2 cups of water
  • bring your pot to a boil
  • add seasoning to taste (I would use 2 tblsp each of salt, black pepper,garlic powder, and 1 tblsp of cayenne and white pepper)
  • allow mixture to boil for approx. 15 minutes.
  • add your rice leaving uncovered and stirring occasionally until it returns to a boil.
  • add diced green onion tops
  • reduce the heat to low cover and simmer for 30-45 minutes, until rice is fluffy but not sticky. Do not stir wile simmering.
  • once rice is done, turn off heat and fold together.

Notes

This version of Jambalaya is suitable for a standard 5qt dutch oven able to be cooked in the home! You can use all the meats as a combo or choose one of the meats to go with your sausage.
