Slow Cooker Low Country Boil
- 4 cups water
- 1 (12 ounce) bottle beer
- 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning, divided
- 1 tablespoons seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay(R))
- 1 pound red potatoes, halved
- 1 pound cooked andouille sausage or kielbasa, sliced into 2-inch pieces
- 3 ears of corn, halved
- 1 pound fresh large shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1 lemon, cut into wedges
- ¼ cup butter, melted
For best results, we recommend using:
- Stir water, beer, Cajun seasoning, and seafood seasoning together in a slow cooker; add potatoes.
- Cook on Low for 4 hours.
- Add sausage and corn to the slow cooker and continue cooking on Low for 2 hours more.
- 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.
- Drain the contents of the slow cooker through a colander.
- 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.
