 A summer classic with the convenience of the crockpot

 

Crockpot Low Country Boil - FamilyFreshMeals.com Fun Summer Meal 5

Nothing says summer like  a  Low Country Boil. It has to be one of the most fun meals to eat.  The combo of corn, shrimp, potatoes and sausage  are unlike any other.

You should have seen the girls’ faces when I started dumping the food onto the newspaper covered table. “Mommy!!!! What you are doing?!!!”  

The “cool factor” of being able to eat with our hands, off of newspaper,  really enticed the girls to give this new recipe a try.  Score!

This Crockpot Low Country Boil is a perfect recipe to make for a group of friends this summer.  So grab some newspaper, shrimp sauce , lemons, and have a blast!

NOTE: You will need a 6-7 quart crockpot for this recipe. I used a 6 quart and it was filled to the brim!

    This recipe looks awesome, I can wait to try it! I just recently became a follower and I’ve enjoyed all the recipes I’ve tried so far, thanks!

      • Nan says

        Corey – it’s just me and my husband (both senior citizens) and this makes WAY too much for us. Any chance of cutting it in half or even in third with appropriate directions?

        • Corey says

          Could you just half the recipe and reduce the time a little. So for steps 4 & 5 ( 4. Cover the crockpot and cook on Low heat setting 4-5 hours.

          5. Add sausage and corn, cover and cook 2 hours longer.) I would cook on low for 4 hours and then for step 5, cook fro 1.5 hours. I would keep the last step the same to insure the sausage and shrimp heat through. I hope that helps!

          • Erin says

            This helps a lot! My husband and I are both in the Pacific North West but we’re originally from the south east. I’ve done country boild in pot before but this slow cooker sounds much more flavorful. Your recommendation for how to do a half batch makes a big diffrence for us, since the standard recipe would be way too much food and not cost effective for just us. Thank your for taking the time to respond to questions, it really helped me. :-)

  2. Carol says

    I can’t wait to try this. We are having company from the south, this summer. I think this will be a perfect meal for when they are here!

  3. PATRICIA MELOY-JUNKROSKI says

    Corey, I really love your site. John and I will be this one! He’s a sausage-lover and my penchant is for seafood! Patty & John from Marengo, IL

  4. Brandy Cooper says

    Im new to this site/blogging but since my parents are from New Orleans, I saw this, it caught my attention! My dad does this from time to time and we throw in all kinds of stuff! Thanks for the post.

  5. Dianna McGee says

    I was so excited to see this one, it’ in my crock pot right now!!! Growing up we made this when we went camping, now I can have it anytime I want! Can’t wait for 6 pm to come today! Thanks again Chef Corey, love, love, love your ideas!!!!

  6. Amanda says

    I made TWO crockpots full of this yesterday for a birthday party and it was amazing! Everyone loved it!

  7. Melissa says

    Have you ever added snow crab to this? My DD’s go crazy for snow crab legs. I’d love to do this for them. Looks so yummy!

  8. Megan says

    Do you think this would work with clams and mussels as well? How about some lobsters? My BF loves a seafood boil and I can’t wait to try this once it gets warmer!

  9. says

    I made this today and blogged about it as part of my Spring Cleaning New Recipe Challenge. It was awesome! I love seafood boil potatoes and corn and loved the malty-ness that beer added to the boil broth. I served the strained broth with French bread for dipping. Everyone in my family loved it…especially my three-year-old son. I really liked the addition of sausage, as well.

  10. Sarah says

    Just made this yesterday. So easy, fresh and healthy. I really enjoyed it! I wanted something light and summery and this fit the bill.

  11. says

    Made this down at the beach! Was a great easy recipe that allowed me to spend time with family rather than cooking! Also got fresh shrimp! Yummy! Thanks for the recipe!

  12. Jennifer says

    Made this over the weekend for my family. Large family so I doubled and cooked in a large electric.Turkey roaster. Turned out perfect! Added green peppers from our garden too! My kids loved it…although we did use forks, lol!

  13. Cynthia says

    As I live in the deep south, where crawfish, shrimp, and crab boils are a weekly thing, I felt the need to mention the other veggies that boil up well with this.
    Zucchini
    Mushrooms
    Don’t be afraid to try anything that you really enjoy. I’ve had okra boiled in this way, but have not had any success doing it myself; it tends to fall apart.

    We also don’t mince or cut anything, it all goes in whole, with the peel, just a little messier to eat, lol. But there is just something special about popping an entire clove of garlic into your mouth, it’s hard to describe. I would recommend peeling the onion and garlic for the crockpot though. And if you enjoy the Cajun crawfish boil, be careful when eating the mushrooms, they always absorb the most pepper.

    I’ve never considered using my crockpot for this, as we usually boil up 40+ pounds at a time, but now that my husband and I are empty-nesters, I have longed for boiled shrimp for 2, lol. I’ve got to try this soon.

  14. alize says

    Can u keep the soup?? Because I’m 16 n my mom wants me to cook it n I think if I keep the soup it’ll taste really good.

  15. Faith says

    If you cook shrimp for 30 mins u will have a large problem. Shrimp should only cook about 7 mins tops.

  16. Sharon says

    Okay so I skip the beer part & put broth due to my pregnancy, I also skip putting them on newpapers because newpapers has ink that is made & bacteria . . (What an actual newpaper guy tells me) meanwhile I did it on an medium pot which still works best. I love the whole dinner idea & it taste wonderful! I also add some crab legs to it, I actually had done this on my BBQ party. Everyone loved it so does my son & my little baby in my belly lol by the way im starting to crave this again !! Lol

  17. Julie says

    This was super easy and very delicious! I prepped the veggies the night before so I could throw everything in as needed the next day. (I used frozen shrimp that I thawed because that is what I had on hand, but it was still really tasty). Going to double the batch and use fresh shrimp and chorizo instead of kielbasa when our NM relatives come to visit next month, they will be over the moon! Would be very yummy with crabs too!

  18. Maureen Whitcomb says

    Thank you – I cannot wait to try this!! Question: Do you know how well leftovers would freeze?
