Enjoyable and Easy I didn't use saffron (because really who has 15 for a spice?) but it still turned out really well. I have two very picky eaters who didn't love it but I enjoyed it and am looking forward to the leftovers. I halved the recipe and still had more than enough for three people. Pros: Taste Easy to Make Cons: Doesn't satisfy everyone's taste
So savory and complex! This was DELIGHTFUL!! A bit time consuming to make but it was perfect for tonight's Saturday-night-in! Also make sure your Dutch oven goes in the oven... If it does this is a ONE POT meal!! I used more chicken stock (32 oz instead of 28 oz) and an entire can (14.5 oz) of tomatoes. I also used both artichokes and green beans though should I make this again I'll probably leave out the artichokes (the green beans have better texture and give it a little crunch since I used fresh green beans that I steamed) and possibly leave out the shrimp as well (they were good but not necessary IMO). This was seriously good and WILL be going into my regular rotation. Pros: Feeds a crowd! Cons: Not the dish for a quick dinner!
Question Any thoughts on how I could adjust this for the crock pot? I saw the previous post about the pressure cooker but I don't know how similar that would or how long it would take with a crock pot. Thanks for any help!
I used green beans as well. It was pretty good. Since I'm the only one in my family who likes the shrimp I didn't use it. Instead I put some chicken breast. I thought it was going to be spicy but it wasn't. My 11 year old step daughter had the second! It's a little time consuming though.
I got home real late and everyone still needed to be fed so didn't have time to marinate anything. I basically threw everything into our pressure cooker (ok put in the rice the last half hour put the shrimp in for only the last 5 mins.) and it came out great! I skipped the capers since they're iffy with my crowd. Also didn't want to buy a huge bag of shrimp and didn't have time to hit a lot of stores for shrimp by the pound so just grabbed a box of frozen shrimp scampi and used it (tasted great). Also used Spanish smoked paprika which gave it a slight heat--but real soft and slight (my stomach doesn't handle spicy anymore sob). You could do variations on this basic recipe too--substitute beans for the rice. Toss in some smokey sausage or chopped fish or chicken. It's flexible. Oh couldn't find frozen artichoke hearts either so I used a couple large jars drained and rinsed them really really well so they wouldn't taste so tangy. Made some garlic olive oil spinach on the side (a nice chunky salad would be good too) lots of warm french bread to soak up all the sauce or tortillas.
This was a really good different recipe...kids loved it! I made this last night and the family had to wait until 10:00 to eat but they loved it! I didn't have the saffron and couldn't find it in the store so I had to skip that. I added Tony Cachere's afterwards before serving and everyone had seconds!
