Jeff's Recipe for Oysters in a Pan

Recipe by  

"This recipe is great as an appetizer served over crackers or sliced toasted French bread. Also, the dish can be poured over pasta if enough gravy is made. This recipe has the basic ingredients. You should make the sauce as thick as you like. Never use cold water when thickening any gravy or roux. It will ruin the bond between the flour and oil."

  1. Melt the butter in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the onions, bell pepper, garlic, green onions, and celery in the melted butter until tender, about 10 minutes. Add the oysters to the vegetable mixture and cook until the oysters are cooked through, about 10 minutes more.
  2. Stir the Creole seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, and hot pepper sauce into the oysters and vegetables to combine. Scatter the flour over the mixture and stir until thickened. Slowly pour the chicken stock into the mixture, stirring as you add it. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook and stir until the liquid reaches a desired thickness, 10 to 15 minutes.

I used this recipe. I used seasoning salt and kikomannan sauce instead of other seasoning and served it over rice. It is like a delicious seafood gumbo, very tasty and worth the time it takes to make, w/o over-cooking anything.

Yum - this is good...if you don't have the creole seasonings you can google the brand noted and it gives you the recipe for that seasoning. When I made it it got thick fast add broth iif you want it soupier.

Not a fan! i love oysters, and I'm sorry to be a hater. My husband didn't seem to mind it, but i could barely eat it. Was way too salty for my preference, and the taste left in my mouth was not a good one, i had three glasses of water with the one bowl :*( Sorry, wish i could of enjoyed it more!

My wife and I just finished our second bowl for the evening. This was AWESOME! Served over white rice, I made no changes or alterations other than using red bell pepper simply because that's what I had. Thanks for the recipe. I just noticed the Add photo button but there's none left to
