If you've ever eaten Vietnamese food and not had this, you have been missing out. Very good and pretty healthy. I'm sure someone from Vietnam could critique this to death. I've had lots of Vietnamese food and this tastes pretty authentic.
When I saw the original recipe in a gourmet food magazine, I thought "yuk - fish and cabbage!". But, as I reread the ingredients I knew this would be a keeper. I was right, this stew is on my 5 star list! I like a soupier version so I use a 3rd bottle of clam juice, a whole cup of cream snd 1/2 cup of white wine - it's delicious!
Are you ready for this? FINALLY! Dolly has revealed her recipe for the YUMMY Dixie Stampede Soup in her cookbook called DOLLY'S DIXIE FIXIN'S. I spent almost $30 just to get the REAL recipe for this soup. There is a less than desirable copycat recipe out on the web. It's just not the same. ENJOY! and leave comments please. :) **Remember, they adapted this recipe for a few servings, not a few thousand servings**UPDATE: I would recommend that you make a white/blonde roux with the butter and flour before add the rest of the ingredients. This will help with the thickening and keep lumps out. It could take a good 15 minutes simmering after adding the half and half to see desired consistency.
You will need to make corn stock AND shrimp stock. I suggest using shrimp since the stock will be used anyway. You may also add a little cornstarch dissolved in water at the end if you prefer this to be slightly thicker. Prep time includes time for stocks.
This recipe is based on another recipe I found on the internet. I made a few changes and added my own touches. It does take a long time, but it produces the richest flavor possible! I made a double batch of this last night and had 12 people over for dinner. They all declared that it's the best gumbo they have ever had!
I now have my crock-pot 6 months. Because I don't need it as a time saver I have not used as much as I thought I would. But, it is great to make good chicken stock and I use it for that purpose a lot. I let the crock-pot do this during the night. My crock-pot is 3 liter/quart so a small one, adjust the ingredients to the size pot you are using and use your own judgement. I find it handy to freeze some of the stock in ice-cube bags for sauces.
If you do not have all the ingredients on the list...it does not matter, you also do not have to follow the amounts exactly, be creative and add other veg or more of the same, or what you have in the fridge and think is suitable for making this recipe, just let it cook slowly to get a great rich stock. Have fun with this and enjoy the result!
This makes a to die for super rich seafood bisque, chocked full of seafood such as shrimp, crab, salmon, clams and cod and is lower carb than most,due to no potatoes. Hint for low carbers: use Wondra "instant flour" and all you will need is about 1 or 2 TBS to thicken. The original recipe was obtained from a local restaurant.
One cold november night I started looking for a nice warm seafood soup or chowder recipe but I couldn't find the perfect one. I went out and bought some chowder ingredients and spent the next day creating. This is the result. Enjoy!
This is a soup that I have concocted under the inspiration of 4 different recipes, and out of the sheer, selfish desire to satisfy my childhood cravings! I took what I liked from each, discarded what I didn't, and added a few what-nots that I craved. My 4 kids have always been leery of vegetable soup, but when they tried this version based on my own particular favorites, it was "4 Thumbs Up!" You can't beat those odds...:)
Mushrooms and vermouth - who knew they'd taste so good together? Very good, broth-based soup where the mushroom flavor really shines, since there's no cream or milk. It's also vegetarian but could be made vegan (substitute olive oil for butter and vegetable broth for chicken broth). We usually have this all year round, but like it especially to start a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. Especially nice since you can make it in advance! Adapted from "Colorado Cache".
If you're not watching your sodium intake, use regular instead of low-sodium ingredients. This recipe is based on chili served at Gallagher'ss Steak House, 228 West 52nd Street, New York City, with just a couple of very minor alterations.
