    PaulaG's Note:

    A very basic creole sauce that can be used when making shrimp creole, stuffed peppers or my favorite as a gravy over meat. I especially love this with rice topped with leftover meatloaf slices and then this sauce spooned over.

      I used only:
      Vegetable oil
      Garlic (mashed up with salt)
      Red pepper
      Canned diced tomatoes
      Worcester sauce
      Beef flavoring dissolved in hot water
      Cayenne pepper
      Black pepper
      And kinda eye balled it to get the right consistency. If you don't add too much water there's no need to "thicken" it up. Cooking it this way made it delicious!! I served it on top of pan fried tilapia with coconut rice on the side. VERY tasty!

      I have never had Creole sauce before, but I can see that it would be very versatile! I froze some to try you meatloaf idea:) Next time I will use fresh garlic and mash it with salt, I used Jarred stuff this time, and it just stayed hard! BTW you have Wostershire sauce in the directions, but not in the ingrediants, I just used a good splash. made for Aussie swap march 2010

      This was really good. I mean really good. DH will be very pleased when I bring this out of the freezer in a few weeks, thicken it up a little, add some chicken, and serve it with some rice. He was glad to see it this time (he comes from a long line of Cajuns)! :) His comments: the veggies could use a little more cooking (they were still crispish, especially the celery) and I didn't thicken it up enough. But the flavor, he said, was perfect! Thank you. I like making my Cajun happy.
