This easy oyster stew recipe is made with fresh oysters, milk, butter, and seasonings. Serve with crackers and a tossed salad for a satisfying meal.
To thicken the stew slightly, an optional flour and water slurry may be added to the stew before it's finished.
Green onions or chives may be added to the stew for extra flavor and color. See the tips and variations for more.
Pour the milk into crockpot; cover and cook on HIGH for 1 1/2 hours.
In a saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the butter; add the minced shallot and cook for 2 minutes. Add the oysters with their liquid and reduce the heat to low. Simmer until edges of oysters curl. Add the salt, a dash of cayenne pepper, and the Worcestershire sauce.
Add the oyster mixture to the hot milk. Reduce the heat to LOW and continue cooking for about 1 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
- If you are working with fresh shucked oysters, make sure to save the liquids within the shells as you shuck them.
- For a richer broth, use 1 quart of half-and-half with 1 quart of whole milk.
- Before you simmer the oysters, add about 1/2 cup of chopped green onions to the butter in the saucepan and saute until translucent. Add the oysters and liquid and continue with the recipe.
