Meatball Stew *Cajun Style*

Down in Southeast, TX we love our stewed meat and rice. This Cajun meatball stew is a classic recipe. Feel free to use whatever meat you want, I used Venison for tonight's dinner, as we still have a never ending supply of it in our freezer.

As you prepare to make this dish make sure you make as many meatballs as you can, because honestly there is nothing better than the day after, meatball sandwich or spaghetti.


2 lbs of ground meat of your choice ( I highly suggest doing a mixture of beef and pork)

1/3 cup of breadcrumbs

1 egg

a few drops of Worcestershire sauce

1 tbsp Cajun seasoning

1 tbsp garlic powder

1/2 tbsp onion powder

1/2 tbsp black pepper

32 oz of beef broth

32 oz of water

1 scoop of Bacon Up grease

1/2 cup of celery

1 small onion

1 green bell pepper

1/3 cup of roux ( I used jar roux)

1 tbsp of garlic

1 potato Diced
