The Wing Family's version of Buford Stew
Our daughter, Taylor, turned sweet 16 yesterday and requested crab legs for dinner. That request prompted this wonderful Buford Stew which feeds the entire family - for several days! The meal is so simple you can't even say its a recipe. Just grab some crab legs, shrimp, fingerling potatoes, corn and smoked sausage and dump it all into a large pot of boiling water. We add lots and lots of Old Bay Seasoning. A few practical notes: since potatoes take longer to cook, we add those first with the corn and sausage. When the potatoes are soft enough, add the crab and shrimp and cook for another 30 - 45 minutes. We pile it all on a large platter in the middle of the table, pass out the paper towels and dig in! Southern cooking at its finest. Simple and delicious.
