SLOW COOKER LOW COUNTRY BOIL
Low Country Boil made in a crock pot. Great for potlucks with lots of flavor and spice.
Once the warm weather hits, it seems like there’s a picnic or potluck nearly every weekend. One of my favorite meals to make for sharing and eating outside is a good ‘ole Low Country Boil. Potatoes, smoked sausage, corn, and shrimp are slow cooked with lots of spices. Low Country Boil is perfect for the slow cooker. The longer it cooks, the more flavor it soaks up from the spicy cooking liquid.
The potatoes get added first since they take the longest to cook. Just enough water to cover, lots of seasoning, and a few slices of lemon get added o the slow cooker with the potatoes.
Depending on the size of the potatoes, you’ll cook them for 2 to 3 hours on LOW.
Next add in the sausage and corn and continue to slow cook for a few more hours.
And finally, the shrimp go in for just about 30 minutes.
For easy clean-up, I love to line my slow cooker with a Reynolds® Slow Cooker Liner. Clean-up only takes a few seconds. There’s no need to clean out the slow cooker insert. Just throw the bag away. So easy!
For even easier clean-up, serve this Low Country Boil outside on a picnic table covered with newspapers. If you want it a little spicier, sprinkle it with a little cajun seasoning.
