re: Jambalaya - Gonzales Style with pics.


Yeah my wife's kin is from Sorrento. They all get together a few times a year for a mini-pot competition. At first I hated it, because it interferred with my drinking. Now I love it. By the time it's ready, I'm feeling NO PAIN. Cooking a Jam just seems to make it flow smooth.

I always have trouble with my rice. Not any more. Sat. night it was perfect.

Kim Leblanc's seasoning is all you need. 5lbs of rice=1 can of his seasoning. It doesn't hurt to mix the yellow and purple can together.


with the yellow can you can go 1.5 ounces to 1lbs. rice.
2 cups of rice is roughly 1lbs.

Nice post! Ever thought about adding a little chicken bouquet to make it darker? Just curious?

i think you mean kitchen bouquet.

you have to make the meat "colay" [stick] when
cooking the water out.

Looks great, but there is no need to ever take anything out of the pot when cooking a jambalaya...

Looks good!

Pretty similar to my process, I typically throw in some chicken thighs and an andouille along with the smoked sausage and pork. I also cheat from time to time and add a bit of kitchen bouquet for color. When cooking for myself I use typical long grain, when cooking for others I will often use parboiled.

much easier. don't have to worry as much about
burning the noodles. if water ratio is right, constant stirring until noodles are cooked.

Agreed... I started cooking my jambs this way and it's great.... Want to try a spagetti jamb next. Anyone have some tips on pasta or spagetti jambs?

I'm a NELA boy that didn't know anything about a jambalaya, then i started doing them just like this, and now I'm a hero...



But I think there is a pastalaya recipe in the cookbook at the top of the 1st page on the food board

I just cooked the op's recipe for a thanksgiving potluck at work. It was one of the only dishes that had none left when it was over. This recipe dvst8d the competition. I need to get a dutch oven because I keep having to use stainless steel pots, but it still comes out pretty good.
