When my old crock pot quit working I only had my rice cooker and decided to use it as my crock pot. The Jambalaya turned out every bit as delicious as when using the crock pot for my jambalaya recipe.



Fry the smoked sausage in a frying pan on the stove. Stop to remove excess grease. Add all the remaining ingredients to the rice cooker and stir gently. Add cooked sausage after draining well. Push the cook button on the rice cooker and when the rice cooker stops cooking, it's ready. Serve in bowls with hot sauce and green salad.

  • 1 package instant brown rice
  • Beef broth
  • 1 can dark red kidney beans
  • 1 package kielbasa
  • 1 medium chopped onion
  • Olive oil
  • Emeril's seasoning


Saute the onions in olive oil, cut up kielbasa and add to it. In a separate pot, bring beef broth to a boil then add the instant brown rice. Cook the rice 10 minutes on low. Combine the rice into the kielbasa and onions and add the can of red beans. Sprinkle on Emeril's seasoning, stir and simmer for 20 minutes.

This meal cost me a little over $11.00 to feed all four of us and we had enough leftovers for two!

We have good friends who often do a little shrimping every Spring. The Spring is especially good for catching large amounts of the beautiful Jumbo Shrimp, so we make this great Shrimp Jambalaya several times each year.

I am searching for a recipe using the slow cooker. It is jambalaya using sausage, chicken or turkey, and shrimp. I had a recipe that I found in a magazine a few years ago, (I believe it was Woman's World) anyway, it was fabulous. Unfortunately I have lost it.

I have tried other recipes, but none have had that wonderful mixture of flavors. Any suggestions? All recipes would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Deb and her pets.
