Mr. Louis is a cajun that really knows jambalaya! People from all over town love it! He usually makes this in a big cast iron kettle for large gatherings but I think I did a pretty good job of making it more family sized.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 lbs boston butt, cut into bite sized pieces and trimmed of fat

  1. Heat oil in a large dutch oven with lid. Add boston butt, onion and garlic salt. When almost done, add kielbasa. Cook until browned. Add rice, water, creole seasoning, and green onions.
