According to my hubby and my friend, Morgan, it was a huge success! I’m still not the biggest fan of potato stew, but at least now I’ll eat it! It’s a good “comfort food” type of meal! I just went ahead and threw all the “extras” in from the crawfish boil: potatoes, onions, garlic, sausage, hot dogs and corn. I barely even had to add seasonings, since it was so well seasoned already!
Note: If you don’t happen to have leftovers from a crawfish boil, simply use regular potatoes and sausage and season it to taste!
Spicy Potato Stew
about 6 small potatoes, cut into small bite-sized pieces
sausage, cut into bite size pieces
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
3 ears corn, cut from the stalk
1 stick butter
1/2 cup flour
seasonings to taste
Melt butter in a large pot, stir in flour. Keep stirring and scraping the bottoms and the sides until it is the color of a brown paper bag (this is called making a roux). Add the onions and let them soften a little. Add water to break up the roux. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Add water until covered, stir well. Simmer about an hour, tasting for seasonings. Serve over rice.
