Frogmore Stew, Low Country Boil, Beaufort Boil, call it good eating...
By host @ 7:31 PM :: 46143 Views :: 55 Comments :: Article Rating :: Recipes

Frogmore Stew was something I came across about 7 years ago.  At the time I was helping someone make a batch for a Super Bowl Party and here I am making a web page about it.  Frogmore is called a few different names... Beaufort Boil, Low Country Boil, Crab Boil and of course my favorite Frogmore Stew.  The recipe that I learned from has been modified somewhat over the years from my experiences and suggestions from some of the highest coinsurers of Frogmore Stew in South Carolina.  Normally, the stew is made for a fairly large group of people (15-30).  With my recipe you can feed roughly 25 people with a few heavy eaters in the crowd.  So, lets get down to the good stuff and see what is in the stew.

Before you start you will need a very, very large pot (I am guessing the pot I have is around 10 gallons) and a propane burner.  If you don't have a very large pot you will need two pots and have to divide the stuff up equally between the two.  Next, fill the pot up with water just under half way straight from the spigot (not trough the hose).  Some people at this point would say pour in some beers too but to me that is a waste of a perfectly good beer because I have yet to notice a difference in the taste when making a large amount of Stew as this recipe calls for.   Next, take your pot to your burner and get it started heating up to boiling.  While waiting pour in two of the Old Bay Seasonings, the Whole Peppercorns, the Zataran's and the Cider Vinegar.  Let all that get to a good boil. The way you know you got the spices and things right is by breathing in over the pot and see if it almost takes you breath.  If it does you got the spices right.  If not add more spices.  The first thing you do is cook crab legs. Most Crab legs you get all you need to do is boil them for about 5-7 minutes and they are ready.  Once you are finished cooking the crab legs take an older cooler and dump the crab legs in there and they will stay hot until the stew is ready, After you get all the crab legs cooked and out of the pot add the potatoes. Cook for about 10 minutes. Once the potatoes are semi-soft throw in the Sausage again let cook for about 5 minutes and then add the onions. Once it starts boiling again add the corn. Now let it boil for a few minutes.  Now, for the shrimp the key is to not over cook them.  Add all the shrimp to the pot with it boiling and then let them pink up just a little and cut the flame off.  Put the lid on the shrimp will keep cooking until you are ready to serve which for me happens about 2-3 minutes after I cut off the burner. Make sure the shrimp are a good pink and separate easily from the shell.

Don't forget the cocktail sauce. And always make your own, it is so much better.

Frogmore Stew Recipe

2 Cans of Old Bay Seasoning
1 Can of Zatarn's Cajun Seasoning or some spice to add some heat.
50 or more whole black peppercorns
1 Qt. Apple Cider Vinegar
10 lb bag of Potatoes
10 Turkey Smoked Sausages
5 lb bag of Onions
36 Small Ears of Frozen Corn
10 lb of Shrimp
20-30 lbs of Crab Legs (if not get more shrimp)

Cut up the potatoes and onions in quarters.

Once you got everything cooked lay down some newspaper and just dump the contents of the pot (after draining) onto the table and enjoy.  And that is Frogmore Stew according to Matt Edwards.

Matt, Love your site, and am planning on using your recipe for an after dance recital party, will red wime work?


By host @ Sunday, March 05, 2006 9:38 PM
I think red would go well with this. Of course Merlot is my favorite wine so I am partial.

By host @ Sunday, March 05, 2006 9:42 PM
Forgot to say let me know how it goes! One thing I forgot to mention for more flavorful presentation take some of the "broth" or liquid our of the pot and pour over the piles of frogmore stew this will put spices from the stew directly on the food. A measuring cup would work well.

I would add other things into the stew such as chicken or beef to make it better. I would add some carrots and other vegetables as well.

This reminds me of when I used to work for a sealcoating company back in Louisiana and we would have boils like this every month. Definitely miss it.

Looks like it was a wonderful feast. Get-togethers like this need a jump start sometimes but they almost always seem to be worth it.

The shrimp and sausage in this dish serve as the proteins, while the corn, onions and potatoes fill the traditional side dish roles. floor polishing auckland However, you can expand your feast with some traditional Southern sides such as Cole slaw, collard greens, mustard potato salad, black-eyed peas and corn bread or hush puppies.

Have you ever tried frog leg stew. I had it with my construction container service team when we had a bbq to promote our website and it was one of the tastiest things I've ever had.

By tsalg @ Saturday, February 08, 2020 7:59 PM
This looks delicious! We just had a cookout here at valley window cleaners but it was nothing like this. Hope you had a great time!

By tsalg @ Saturday, February 08, 2020 8:01 PM
Crab is one of my favorites too. Can never find any good crab in this area. Would be great to get some and have a crab feed like my brothers junk removal company did a while back!

Good eating indeed! Reminds me of the day I got my stove repaired by after a week of eating fast food. Cheers! I think I know how you feel!

By MacS99 @ Thursday, February 13, 2020 8:22 PM
PS. After getting my oven repaired I also made a bacth of low country stew like this, which is why I said what I said. Just wanted to explain, and say "thank you" again. Thanks!!!!
