Recipe by Sally Hall

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 60 minutes

Yield: 2 - 4 Persons

Ingredients

1 stick Butter
4-6 cups Rice (cooked)
1 Ham Steak (about ½” thick)
1 pkg. Smoked Sausage
1 tsp. Garlic Puree/or Minced
2 cans Beef Broth
1 can Chicken Broth
2 cans Tomatoes
1 small can Tomato Paste
2 cans (+/-) Water

The Flavourings:

10-20 shakes of Tabasco
1 Tbsp. Celery Flakes
1 tsp. Red/White/Black Pepper
1 tsp. Celery Salt
1 tsp. Sweet Basil
1/2 tsp. Thyme
1/2 tsp. Onion Salt
1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
3 Bay Leaves
1 Tbsp. Minced Onion
1 Tbsp. Bell Pepper Flakes
1 Tbsp. Sweet Pepper Flakes
1 Tbsp. Dried Shallots

Instructions

1. In a large pan (like a Dutch oven) – spray with Pam or non stick spray and melt butter on low heat.

2. Cube ham steak (I also use left over baked ham, sliced and tossed into a zip lock bag, then into the freezer) and thinly slice the smoked sausage. Add this to the melted butter and cook on medium heat for 15-20 minutes. You can assemble the spices and measure into a small bowl while this is cooking.

3. Add the spices, tomatoes, broth and water; stir and simmer for another 15-20 minutes.

4. You can pre-cook the rice or do so now. When it is fully cooked, add to the above mixture. After you add the rice, simmer for 10-20 minutes more to let the rice take on the flavor and spices of the Jambalaya.

Sally's Notes :
This mixture should be thick, not watery; you can add more rice or more water to fix the mix. Keep in mind that this tends to be salty, but don’t decrease the salt. If it’s too much for your taste, add a large raw potato cut into 4 pieces to absorb the excess- remove before serving.

  1. As someone born and raised in Louisians i can tell you that this is not jambalaya. The rice should be added raw and then cooked. This looks like some kind of of stew. Also true jambalaya does not have tomatoes. New Orleans jambalaya does but it’ classified as creole.
