Walkers' Brown Oyster Stew

Recipe by  

"A complete change from the typical dish, this is inspired by the recipe of the Walker family of Orange Beach, AL. It is roux based, not cream, and is rich, hearty and deeply satisfying. Red pepper flakes and/or hot sauce may be added as desired."

Directions

  1. Cook the bacon in a Dutch oven or large pot over medium heat until browned and crispy, about 10 minutes. Pour off all but 1/4 cup of bacon fat, and stir in the onions and celery until the onions have turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the flour, and cook until the flour begins to brown, about 10 minutes.
  2. Pour in the clam juice, water, and potatoes. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the potatoes are just tender, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, and stir in the oysters. Recover, and simmer 5 minutes until the oysters have firmed. Ladle into bowls to serve.

I didn't have half & half available so decided to try this roux based version and it was surprisingly very good. Leftovers the next day were even better.

GREAT recipe!!! it was a big hitfor the whole family! my dad says it his favorite stew by far... the only thing i changed was i used milk instead of water to make it more creamy. I will definitely be serving this again.

I have made this several time's But change a couple things I use milk in place of the water and add a couple squirts of hot sauce with about 2 qts of oysters instead of one... we love oysters.... just before serving this is how my dad always made it when we were kids.
