  • Big pot
  • Large mixing tub
  • Grinder


  • 0.625 lbs 10 oz of chicken livers, adding a rich and indulgent element to the recipe, providing depth of flavor
  • 2 chopped bell peppers adding a vibrant and sweet flavor, as well as a colorful visual appeal
  • 1 cup of freshly chopped parsley providing a vibrant and herbaceous note to the dish
  • 2 bunches of green onions thinly sliced, offering a mild and refreshing onion flavor with a hint of crispness
  • 4 lbs of pork butt a tender and flavorful cut of meat, perfect for slow cooking to achieve melt-in-your-mouth tenderness
  • 3 quarts of water ensuring a generous amount of liquid for simmering the pork and creating a flavorful broth
  • 4 grams of cayenne pepper providing a fiery and spicy kick to the recipe, adding depth and heat.
  • 2 chopped onions bringing a savory and aromatic essence to the dish
  • 7.5 grams of aromatic black pepper finely ground, adding a bold and spicy flavor to the pork
  • 0.5 bunch of celery coarsely chopped, contributing a refreshing and slightly bitter note to balance the flavors
  • 3 cups of cooked white long-grain rice fluffy and delicate, serving as a satisfying and versatile base for the dish
  • Salt half the original quantity, precisely measured to season the dish to perfection, enhancing the flavors without overpowering them
  • 1 tbsp of minced garlic releasing its pungent aroma and enhancing the overall taste of the dish


  • Start by cutting the pork butt into cubes. Place in a large pot and cover with 6 quarts of cool water. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 1 hour or until tender.
  • Strain the pork cubes, reserving both the meat and cooking liquid separately in separate containers. In a large mixing tub, mix together the pork cubes, black pepper, parsley, green onion slices, cooked white long-grain rice, chicken livers, and celery.
  • Heat the reserved cooking liquid in a pan over medium heat. Add in the chopped onions, bell peppers, garlic, salt, and cayenne. Simmer for 10 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
  • Add the cooked vegetables to the pork mixture and stir to combine. Using a grinder, process the pork and vegetable mixture in batches until finely ground. Fill casings with the mixture and twist to form boudin. Refrigerate until ready to cook.


  • It's important to use high-quality ingredients and to take care when cooking the pork butt so that it remains tender. To get the best results, cook the pork butt slowly over low heat until it’s nice and tender.
  • It's also important to mix all the ingredients together well and make sure that everything is evenly distributed. This will help to ensure that each bite of Best Stop Boudin has the perfect flavor and texture.
  • Adding a bit of butter or olive oil can give the dish an extra boost of flavor.
  • It's important to let the boudin cool before serving. This will help all the flavors meld together and create a perfectly balanced dish.
