Default Re: Low Country Boil

i would suggest steaming the mudbugs on the side with the crab boil, but really spice it up with cayenne and red pepper, maybe some garlic powder, just a few dashes, sprits with lemon and pour on top!!!

If you do live mudbugs don't forget to purge them before cooking. Easiest way is a cheap plastic kiddie pool filled with a super saturated salt water solution. DON'T eat any crawdads with straight tails after boiling. They died before being cooked and can make you sick.

I can't believe not a single person here mentioned adding apple cider vinegar to the pot. It's a critical ingredient. The acetic acid helps keep the shrimp meat from sticking to their shells.

Default Re: Low Country Boil

Pro Tip: After your crustacean of choice has finished boiling, turn off burner, and dump handfuls of ice directly into your pot with your stew. The ice will serve to close the pores of the shrimp, crab, etc. thus locking seasoning into the meat. Believe me it makes a difference.

Comes from Cajun relatives recipe and experience.

BTW. if you want spice this is the stuff to use right here.

Follow suggestions by Beaufort and Batgirl, timeline + condiments by Leeky( with exception of going 15 min vs 20 min initial potato) and already suggested cornbread. Can't Miss!!!

Unless you know for certain that EVERY person that is going to be having their meal for that evening or afternoon is into "fire" spicy, I wouldn't go there. The last thing you want is for folks(especially the femmes) to be walking away from the table hungry.

Funny you say that. Both my wife and her mother love spicy. The mother-in-law can sit there and eat habeneros like they're nothing. I gave her some reaper sauce to try, and she just took a deep breath, exhaled, and went for more.

Anyways yeah good advice nonetheless. I know my son loves him some low country boil, but he can't quite handle anything spicy just yet.

Just cook the Hillshire with the Old Bay and beer...season the corn and all the mushy stuff in a separate pot and cook..If you cook it all together, most people will screw it up...

Hey Beaufort, Walter Gay would mess his pants up with these new versions...

amen

My "secret" is to turn off the heat before the shrimp hit the water, and be ready to pull the basket in under 2min. Overcooked shrimp is a felony in Beaufort county.

If your shrimp are sticking to the shell you overcooked them plain and simple. I've only used the ice method on stone crab claws and I admit it makes the meat pull away from the shell and you get the whole piece, but NEVER do it to your frogmore stew.

Please cook up your sausage in a cast iron frying pan with onions...Then poor the whole dang pan into your boil. Do this right after you put your skrimps in. Sausage cooked like I have directed will add a wonderful flavor to your pot. Boiling sausage will not release the flavor of the meat and will dilute the meat taste...

I've heard it called beaufort since the 70's but only recently did I hear it called low country boil. You can cook it all together but you can't over cook it you need to stay to your times per product.

I've got to try this. Would you add any of the old bay to the sausage in the skillet? I only use vidalia onions would this be an issue?

Default Re: Low Country Boil

The belief in my family is that the addition of potatoes is entirely dependent on the number of people you're serving and your budget. If we do it for a smaller crowd the taters are omitted so you can eat more shrimp. Taters are only added for the purpose of feeding more people and getting more Frogmore Stew for your money, especially when feeding a larger crowd. Sounds like you may be feeding a bigger crowd so assuming you'll want to include the taters.

I also have to disagree with Batgirl. Serving on a table covered in newspaper is not a must. I've had it that way before, but if you want to class it up a little bit it's totally acceptable to put everything on a platter. The presentation should be dependent on the type of event.

We use a long wooden platter to put it in. I've got a couple people that only want to eat the potatoes (yes they are strange)

First time I even had it LT had put some stone crabs in also. We used to set a pot or two near the rock jetty at Fripp Inlet, but people kept stealing them...Some of the recipes that people are talking about here don't even resemble Frogmore stew...Where did you grow up in Beaufort? Was in in Pigeon Point before buying a house on Ladys Island, but have been gone since 87..
