MY REVIEW

"when will you out of state people quit putting crab legs in Low Country Boil"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 26, 2014

"This was deeeelicious! I think the beer really added something. Lowcountry boils are usually kind of boring when everything is just boiled in water, but the beer + sautéing the spices, garlic & cumin + the fresh cilantro made it sooooo very flavorful. I used turkey kielbasa and it was awesome. This recipe is a keeper!"

"I substituted half the water for 32 oz. of seafood stock. It just adds that much more flavor. Yum!"

"I've made this twice now and it is fabulous. It's easy and fun to eat. I added about a half of a teaspoon of crushed red pepper for a little zip. YUM!"
