For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Stir water, beer, Cajun seasoning, and seafood seasoning together in a slow cooker; add potatoes.
  2. Cook on Low for 4 hours.
  3. Add sausage and corn to the slow cooker and continue cooking on Low for 2 hours more.
  4. Switch slow cooker to High. Add shrimp, making sure they are submerged in liquid. Cook until the shrimp are pink and firm, 30 to 40 minutes more.
  5. Drain the contents of the slow cooker through a colander.
  6. Spread a few layers of newspaper onto your dining table. Dump the colander contents onto the paper to serve with lemon wedges and melted butter.

Really good low country boil. I used the Jumbo shrimp for this recipe. The beer and Cajun seasoning gave it great flavor too. This is a good weekend or game day recipe.

Simple and easy low country boil recipe! I went with extra large jumbo shrimp. I eat a lot so this recipe fed my wife and me. Great flavor and easy to make.
