re: What are the best boxed/dehydrated Louisiana foods? - Stadium Rat
2 of the worst of these products are the Zat's red beans and rice where the beans and rice are cooked together, and the Cheesy Jambalaya. Cheesy Jambalaya? WTF? ETA: It's officially called "Jambalaya with Cheese"....

[quote]Cook Me Somethin Mister Jambalaya mix is great.[/quote] You've got to be kidding. That stuff is nasty. Tasted some as a sample at Sam's. It has that strong parboiled/brown rice flavor. Ruins it for me. Oak Grove Jambalaya is the champ of dry Loisiana food mixes. Makes a very good brow...

re: Breaking Down My Red Beans and Rice - Stadium Rat
If you want creamy beans, there needs to be some fat in the pot. Usually you get enough from the meats you put in, but if not, I've even seen restaurants putting in big spoonfuls of Crisco or lard. Popeyes certainly has a lot of fat - I've seen it pooling on top because no more can be incorporated...

Say what you want about chains, we had a tremendous Good Friday lunch there today.

Well there's parboiled rice and then there's parboiled rice. I don't mind the brands that have a subtle flavor. But there are some brands that have a disgusting taste.
