Being from Ireland I have never had or heard of Louisiana stew but it sounds and looks amazing. I love that it is a one pot dish as well, nothing better than having little washing up to do after making a meal. I have never seen smoked sausage, can you get it in a butchers?

Hi there, yes you can get it at any butchers. Smoked sausage is a kielbasi, meaning it's already been precooked. Enjoy!
