Crock-pot meals are the best, mostly because they’re so easy. All you have to do is throw a bunch of stuff in a pot and let it cook. This time around I decided to heat things up with a Keweenaw Widow Maker Crock-pot Jambalaya! Along with all the ingredients, I added a can of Widow Maker, an amazing Black Ale from our Yooper friends at Keweenaw Brewing Company. I love making crock-pot meals with beer, as the alcohol cooks out, but some of the flavors remain.
This is a really easy recipe, I used Dearborn Anouille Sausage, because supporting local businesses is awesome! You could use any sausage you like, as well as any beer, so long as it’s not super bitter or fruity. Just make sure you save enough beer for later so you can enjoy it with the finished jambalaya!
