Growing up in Southeastern Pennsylvania, seafood from the Chesapeake was a norm.
One of my favorite recipes is Maryland Crab Soup cause I LOVE Old Bay anything and this is basically Old Bay soup. YAS.
Now, I am not a chef guys…I just cook things and eat them with no exact measurements or professional training…so bear with me as I share my ridiculous ways.
Okay so you’ll need a big pot cause you’ll want leftovers. It’s always better the next day, right?
- 1 bag of small red potatoes (cubed)
- Lima beans
- Green Beans
- Cooked carrots (chopped up)
- Old Bay Seasoning
- 2 cans of crab meat (feel free to mix in claw meat or whatever you want)
- 1 can crushed tomatoes
- 1 can stewed tomatoes
- 2 cups of beef broth
- Chopped onion
- Salt & Pepper
1. Cut up the potatoes and boil them until you can pierce them with a fork easily. While they are boiling-chop up the onion and saute it with some avocado oil until soft.
2. In a large pot (remember you want leftovers) bring your crushed & stewed tomatoes, beef broth, a splash of Worcestershire, and water to a boil. Now, here’s where I’m no help because I totally eyeball how much water and taste test as I go. Add some Old Bay in there too (I add it throughout the entire process in excess) Once it’s all nice and mixed up turn it down to a simmer.
3. Add your onions, corn, green beans, cooked carrots, lima beans,and potatoes. I add the crab meat last and gentle stir so it doesn’t get totally shredded in the mix.
4. Lastly, add Old Bay to taste, salt, and pepper. I literally add so much Old Bay it is unreal. So, if you want my measurement probably about half the can? #notsorry
I recommend eating it with bread 👌🏻
