I have not found a protein that does not work in a jambalaya. Here is an example with crawfish.
1 medium Onion, chopped
1 medium Green Bell Pepper, chopped
1 Jalapeño Pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons Butter
1 pound (2 1/2 pounds) Crawfish tails, cooked and peeled
1 cup uncooked Rice
1 jar sliced Mushrooms, drained (4 1/2 ounces)
Creole Seasoning to taste
1 cup Beef Stock
1 can Tomato Sauce (8 ounce)
Cook onion, bell pepper and jalapeño pepper in butter over medium-high heat in a large saucepan or Dutch oven, until soft. Stir in crawfish, rice, mushrooms, Creole seasoning, stock and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 25 to 30 minutes or until the rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.
Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!!!
