    Jambalaya for 25

    OK, I have no problem cooking a mean jambalaya on the stove. I received a 10 gallon pot for Christmas this year and I am about to try it out this weekend. I will be cooking for about 25 people that expect the same jambalaya that I produce in a regular dutch oven. Does anyone have any hints for large batch cooking that they would like to offer up? What do you all use as a ratio for meat to serving or rice to meat? Thanks in advance and wish me luck!!

    Cool Jambalaya

    Try this recipe for a 10 gallon pot you can feed 100 people cut it down accordingly for your group size.

    10 lbs beef tips
    10 lbs pork
    10 lbs smoked sausage
    10 lbs of chicken

    Add a little olive oil and brown your meats let them cook in there own juices put the lid on and roll regularly. Cook about 45 minutes Once the beef gets tender the chicken and pork should be falling apart. Add one gallon chicken broth 2 large bottles of A-1 Steak Sauce 2 bottles of Kitchen Bouquet and let simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes once this is done add 10 lbs of seasoning blend. Let seasoning cook about 20 minutes bring to a good rolling boil look at your liquid you want it covering the meat about 1" in the pot if you need too add water once it is rolling good add 110 cups of minute rice and turn the fire off put your lid back on the pot wait 5 minutes and roll the jambalaya put the lid back on and wait 3 minutes and it is ready to serve. I cut up all the meats the day before and I coat them with Tony's and Garlic Powder and put them in 2 gallon zip lock bags I have cooked this jambalaya all around the country at oil men conventions and have never had a complaint. The minute rice turns out perfect everytime never gummy or runny try it and you will see. For 25 people cut the recipe 75% and you will be where you need to be. This is a secret so keep it that way. LOL Enjoy and have fun cooking
