Oak Grove jambalaya mix - GOAT of mixes
Kids wanted jambalaya for dinner last night, but I didn’t feel like spending 45 minutes chopping, browning, etc, so I went to the store, bought a rotisserie chicken, smoked sausage, and two packs of Oak Grove jambalaya mix.
I cut up the chicken and sausage, added the mix and stock.
That’s a damn fine meal for ~ $10 to feed four.

No other mix can touch Oak Grove.

Now don’t get me wrong, I can make a damn good jambalaya from scratch (usually pork and sausage), but we just got back from vacation, and was too damn tired to make one.

Been a long time since I had Oak Grove. I've been using Kary's lately. Pretty good too.

A friend of mine in TX loads up on the stuff when she comes here. Her family loves it and, like you, she says it makes for a good quick meal.

Yep. I’ve used it in the past before. Didn’t really follow the recipe. Added vegs and meat. Came out great.

Cajun Fry

We have been using this lately
Made the hot jambalaya a few times, added nothing but meat & water
Probably not as spicy as some would like but well seasoned

Also tried the creole jambalaya & the etouffe
Both were really good

ETA
Rice dressing is good too

Oak Grove is pretty dang good by itself. I’ve been known to use it as a side when I cook pork chops or roasted pork loin.

I’ll try it, but I’ll tell you what isn’t awesome: Tony Chachere’s or Zatarain’s jambalaya mix.

Not at all the same product as

Oak Grove


Oak grove is a Cajun inspired jambalaya. Both Tony’s and Zatarans are some kind of creole influenced jambalaya. I personally like all three but they definitely have different tastes.

its not very good compared to the others, but id never turn it down. I remember as a kid we’d rotate between oak grove, zatarains, and something else. I was happy every time.

Pretty sure this is what ACME Oyster House serves. I know it has the taste of converted rice.

Oak Grove has been a staple at my house since I was a kid. Now that I have my own family we keep a few bags in the pantry. It’s so close to homemade it’s crazy.

Don’t even try to compare Tony’s or Zatarain’s the the OG Oak Grove.

When I go on the road to hunting camps away from home, I always bring Oak Grove mix and Veron’s sausage. Never miss success.

I go in the smokehouse and buy their sausage mixes. All packs are for 25lbs and they are hard to beat if you are making sausage. They have the natural casings too cheap.

And I normally pick up the jambalaya. As Icansee said-keep at the camp for a quick meal.

Cajun Fry is our go to mix. Used to buy it in the stores, then they quit stocking it up here. Tried Oak Grove but preferred the Cajun Fry. Ever since, we order CF by the case from their website and share with friends/family.

You bought all of that for $10?

Same. Had it once a week growing up. Parents would brown some chicken and sausage, id usually steal a piece of each when they were sitting on a paper towel (somehow avoided salmonella) then throw it in the pot with the mix and cook it together.
