Smoked pork sausage rice and gravy

Discussion in 'Sausage' started by kajun, Jun 8, 2008.

  1. i didnt grill anything this weekend but i had some smoked pork sausage in the freezer that a buddy of mine makes back home in La.....in La. "rice and gravy" is the stample food for cajuns...when you look at a cajun your actually seeing a plate of "rice and gravy" ... rice and gravy can be made with any meat..just brown it up real good and make a dark brown gravy , simmer for a few hours till the meat is tender then serve over rice....in the old days poor cajuns worked the rice fields so they had plenty of rice, with alil meat and an onion and they would have a very cheap but good meal.

    the sausage is a pure pork sausage and smoked with a mix of pecan/oak....absolutely delicious!! its not a fatty sausage just enough fat in it to keep it moist....almost as meaty as an andouille sausage.....

    recipe....just brown the sausage(or whatever meat) real good..., pull meat out and then brown one large chopped onion till the onions are brown and glazed, throw meat back in and brown alil more..you can add 1/4 cup water so to be careful not to burn.....once water is gone...add water to cover meat..add another large onion sliced into slivers, mushrooms, green onions, tony chachere's, black pepper, alil red pepper(you can add a tablespoon of kitchen bouquet or browning sauce to darken it up)... cover pot and simmer on medium for a couple hours or till meat is tender.......serve over lots of rice.. and add your favorite side items...i had anaheim peppers, cucumber and sliced onion marinated in vinger for a couple hours...

    here's some gravy-veiw

    next time, SMOKE them shrooms, AND the sausage.....you can still give that sausage......that will even give a better flavor to the dish. BUT NICE.......haven't given out points today, so here you go.......

  9. thanks guys... its "was" delicious.. i just ate the last of it..posting the pics got me hungry again lol

    walking dude....the sausage is cold smoked already...heavy smoke flavor throughout the dish..

    texas-hunter....for "rice and gravy" you don't use a roux..a roux would totally change the "browned meat" flavor..we use roux's in gumbos, fricassee's, etoufee's..but never in a dark brown gravy......the kitchen bouquet is basically for color..it doesnt add hardly any flavor to it....i rarely use it but i knew i would take some pics :)

    The only way to thicken up the gravy would be to add some flour to it or use the broth from a boiled nutria rat tail. IMO it looks just fine.

    Ya did good, yah.

    Interesting background on the dish Kajun, personally at the mention of sausage and gravy it has to be creamy garlic mash potatoes for me. My potato is your rice :) Nice twist on bangers and mash.
