Sunday Supper: Jambalaya
Editor's note: Each Saturday afternoon we bring you a Sunday Supper recipe. Why on Saturday? So you have time to shop and prepare for tomorrow.
There are as many versions of jambalaya as there are cooks. In my house, the essential ingredients are green peppers, celery, onion, okra, rice, tomato and some sort of pork; but feel free to experiment and create your own list of essentials. If fresh okra is not in season use frozen cut okra, but be sure to use a brand you trust—some frozen okra can be distastefully fibrous. As always, homemade stock is best, but a grocery store version always works in a pinch. Coleslaw is a great side with this dinner, as is cold beer.
