All Time Favourite One Dish Food

I can't think of anything better than a good Cajun Jambalaya with shelled crawfish tails, shelled shrimp tails, chicken and andouille sausage...along with the veggies, chicken stock, spices and rice. Jambalaya is a true one-pot, one-plate dish. Yum!

 

post-6379-0-97609200-1343132626_thumb.jpg

 

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cups chopped onions
  • 1 cup chopped bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • Salt and cayenne pepper
  • 1 pound andouille sausage, sliced into 1/4-inch slices
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 2 cups chopped tomatoes, peeled and seeded
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 2 cups white rice
  • 3 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 pounds crawfish tails
  • 2 pounds shrimp tails
  • 1 cup chopped green onions

 

Directions

 

In a large saucepan, heat the vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions, peppers, and celery. Season with salt and cayenne. Saute the vegetables for about 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are wilted. Add the sausage and saute for 2 minutes. Add the bay leaves, tomatoes, and garlic. Saute for 2 minutes. Stir in the rice and saute for 2 minutes. Add the stock. Season with salt and cayenne. Bring the liquid up to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook the jambalaya for 25 to 30 minutes, covered, or until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed. Stir in the crawfish tails, shrimp tails and green onions and re-season, if necessary.

Does not qualify by the OPs description. :)

 

I'll go with my lasagna. I'll have to see if I can rustle up the ingredients...

 

 

Ok, now Tim, you're going completely off the no sides track here.

 

Haha same plate, just rolled up in wax paper and stuck on the side.

well if we're talking local stuff and not counting something like a whole lechon.

my favorite chinese food is lo mien so i'd go with pancit all varieties but even then i like so much stuff that choice is as good as any other.

 

perhaps a good paella but then that's not really local now is it.. but all the stuff needed is there

 

 

 

 

i don't know man it's difficult eating is like a hobby i love trying new things

Paella or Pho'. Pansit with all sorts of vegetables and meat and sea foods if you want local food.

Cheapest and best is one whole lechon manok to go, good for two @160 peso from the stall left of the entrance to SM Supermarket (up market add rice to go 12p).

I have a good number of Asian friends and am in Chinatown every week.

 

Hands down my FAVORITE dish is Siew Yoke Fa made at Wai's on Tyler Street in Boston. DELECTABLE Chinese roast port over a bed of rice, cabbage, cilantro and a special sauce that is to die for.

 

And it's only five bucks a plate!!!

Shit on a Shingle

 

I used to eat a lot of that back in the late 60's and early 70's in the Air Force. Of course, that was back when I could eat a 6,000 calorie-a-day diet and just burn it off with my daily routine. I also ate a lot of SOL (substitute a lump for the shingle...a bicuit for the toast). It's hard to beat a couple of biscuits that are totally smothered in good country-style gravy.

 

To be truthful though...I couldn't fit my breakfast onto a single plate back in those days. If you put your SOL on one plate...you still had to have another plate, so you could have room for your scrambled eggs, hash browns and bacon (all smothered in country-style gravy).

Some nitpickers might claim that the red horse disqualifies this one, but not me.

Sardines and rice. Best with very good imported sardines, spiced in olive oil, and fresh rice. I like good food, and that IS good food, I could live on that for a very long time.........
