Beaufort Stew


Hope and Rod’s friends Debbie and Joe visited us on Edisto Island and made us Beaufort Stew, a traditional local dish also called Low Country Boil and Frogmore Stew.  This recipe fed 20 with lots of leftovers.



20 small, unskinned red potatoes, halved

5 lbs. Vidalia  onions, quartered

1 dozen ears of corn, shucked, 2 – 3 inch pieces

4 lbs. Polska Kielbasa sausage, 2 – 3 inch pieces

2  3-oz. boxes Zatariah’s Crawfish, Shrimp & Crab Boil

12 lbs. fresh shrimp, remove heads before cooking (about  8 lbs. without heads)


Boil water in 28 – 30 gallon pot

When boiling, add potatoes, cook 7 minutes

Add white onions & sausage, cook 7 minutes

Add corn & cook 7 minutes

Add shrimp & cook 7 minutes
