Uncle Bubba's Low Country Boil

Paula Deen's baby brother spills the beans on oysters, family and food - and offers up a delicious recipe for a traditional Low Country Boil (a big pot of steamed corn, potatoes, sausage, onions and shrimp).


Old Bay seasoning

12 baby red potatoes

6 ears corn, shucked and silk removed and cut in half

1 bottle domestic beer (12 ounces)

1 medium white onion, quartered

2 pounds smoked sausage, cut into 1" pieces

1 pound large raw shrimp in the shell


      The Recipe

Fill a stockpot with enough water that would cover all the ingredients.  Add the appropriate amount of Old Bay seasoning according to the container.  Bring to a boil.  Add the potatoes, corn, beer and onion.  Reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes.  Add the sausage and cook 20 minutes more.  Add the shrimp and cook about 3 minutes, or until they turn pink.  Drain the liquid into the sink and pour the boil onto a newspaper-lined table.  Sprinkle with more Old Bay seasoning.  Serves 4.


NOTE:  For large parties, you can use one of those turkey fryers and feed an army!
