Rockefeller should have only two R’s, one at each end, but not one in the middle. However the spelling is so popular both ways, we have decided to list both spellings for the recipe.
- 1 can chopped spinach
- 6 oysters chopped fine
- 3 medium onions chopped fine or grated
- 1 bell pepper finely chopped or grated
- 1 tbsp flour
- 1/4 block of butter 1/4 pound
- seasonings to taste
Original recipe says to cook flour in butter but not to burn it. However, I usually make a roux as I think it gives it a better flavor.
Add onions, bell pepper and seasonings to the roux. Sauté about 30 minutes or until tender. Add spinach and oysters. Simmer an additional 30 minutes. If you prefer more of an oyster taste add some of the oyster juice.
