Full disclosure: it's crawfish season, so instead of shrimp, we used this recipe to do crawfish, keeping everything else exactly the same. Even used an Abita Turbo Dog for the beer to keep it feeling a bit Louisiana bayou. In the spirit of a crawfish boil, shared the rest of the sixer with guests. Was delicious. Those potatoes!

I made this low country shrimp boil for a football party and it was so good. I love new potatoes, and they came out so tender! Next time I'll probably add crab as well! This recipe was enough for me and my husband (and we ate a lot!).

I've only ever made low country boil with seafood seasoning, so I enjoyed this version with Cajun spices and beer. Super easy to make and the potatoes didn't fall apart.

So good! I used frozen corn and andouille sausage for this boil. I also used extra Cajun seasoning because I like mine extra spicy. Simple, straightforward and easy to make without lacking flavor! The beer was also a nice touch!

I substituted the shrimp for crawfish and added crab legs separately. Such a great recipe and super easy to make in the pressure cooker. No one will know that you didn't actually do a traditional seafood boil

I made this dish and man was it delicious! I’m making it today for Valentine’s Day because my husband really enjoyed it!

Made it with andouille, shrimp, corn and potatoes and it was great. Covered it with lemon and some olive oil at the end and a bit of salt.

I cut the recipe in half for my first time making it. It was delicious except some of the potatoes were under done, besides that it tasted very good. I am making it again but this time I am making the full recipe. So easy to make yet so tasty. This is now one of y favorite pressure cooker recipes. Next time I am going to add crab legs and see how it comes out. Definitely a winner.

Wow. We are in the middle of a move so I needed something I could just throw in the pot because the rest of my kitchen boxes haven’t arrived at the new house. LOVED IT. I can’t say enough amazing things about this recipe. It’s easy, delicious and fast!! I will be making this again and again!! I used Cajun andouille sausage and old bay seasoning. I pierced the baby potatoes before putting in the pot and I cooked it for three minutes because I like my potatoes nice and soft. It was perfect!! I can’t wait to serve this for guests!

Can I use another liquid in place of the beer ?

The best meal in the pressure cooker so far!! Amazing. Added scallops with the shrimp and sausage - perfect, not rubbery!

I found this to be lacking in the taste department and I even added extra old bay seasonings. I haven’t ruled the recipe out just yet though and will remake it adding more seasonings and see if that changes anything. The food was good just not seasoned enough.

Daniel Glassner says:

This was great but I don’t see the point of adding the beer. I didn’t taste any of it in the food. Maybe leave out the water next time?
