Slow, Low Country Boil (This would be great to serve at your Super Bowl Party)

by Cindy Rippe

Why serve up the same old food for your Super Bowl party?? Here's a new twist- try this amazing recipe--it's SOOOO easy!!!! You can make it early Sunday morning, and it will be ready to serve by Sunday evening while you watch the big game! I made this recently for some friends, and they couldn't stop talking about it for days! You can spread several layers of newspaper out on your table and serve for easy clean up!! My guests really got a kick out of that! 

Slow, Low Country Boil


3 quarts cold water

1 bottle of beer

1/4 cup Old Bay or other spicy seasonings

1 Tablespoon kosher salt

4 stalks of celery, chopped in big pieces

1 yellow onion, chopped

1 head of garlic, peeled and halved

2 1/2 pounds red potatoes or new potatoes

4 ears of corn, cut into 3 inch chunks

2 lbs. smoked sausage, cut into 1 1/2 inch slices

2 lbs. medium shrimp 

lemon halves 


In a slow cooker (I used a 6 quart) combine water, beer, Old Bay Seasoning, salt, celery, onion, garlic and potatoes. Cook on low heat until potatoes are tender when pierced, 4 to 6 hours.

Add the corn and sausage to the slow cooker and simmer until the corn is tender, 1 to 2 more hours. Add shrimp and simmer till  the shrimp are opaque, 20 to 30 minutes more. Taste the broth and adjust seasonings with salt and pepper if needed. Squeeze lemons on top, if desired abd serve!

Enjoy--I know you will!!!!
