A spicy jambalaya recipe. I got the base for this recipe from Matt and Bobby, who were RAs for my dorm in undergrad, but I've made my own modifications.

This recipe makes about 8 to 10 servings. It takes roughly 2 hours to make.



  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine meat and spices.
  2. Heat a large cast-iron Dutch oven on the stove and add bacon fat. If desired, you can simply fry some bacon in the pot to get your bacon fat.
  3. Sauté meat until dark brown and sticking to bottom of pan, approx. 10 min.
  4. Add onions, celery, bell peppers, and garlic. Stir-fry 10 min.
  5. Add chicken stock and bring to a rolling boil, then reduce to a simmer for 15 min.
  6. Add green onions, parsley, and rice; stir thoroughly.
  7. Cover and let steam until rice is cooked, approx 30 min., stirring once at 15 min.
