Crawfish Etouffee

1 Stick of Butter
2 Ribs of Celery, Chopped
1 Tbsp. Minced Garlic
2 Tbsp. Cornstarch
1 Tbsp. Tomato Paste
4 Bunches of Green Onions, Chopped
1 Large Bell Pepper, Chopped
2 Lbs. Crawfish Tails
Chicken or Seafood Stock
Tony Chachere's Seasoning, to taste
1 Tsp. Zatarain's Liquid Crab Boil
Tabasco Sauce, to taste
2-3 Cups of Rice, Cooked

In a large skillet or dutch oven, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the vegetables and slowly saute, stirring frequently. Cover every so often, to retain moisture. When cooked down fairly well, about 20 minutes, add the crawfish. Simmer, cover for about 5 minutes. Add the tomato paste. Mix a little of the stock with the cornstarch and add to crawfish mixture. Bring to a boil, add more stock and continue stirring. At the boiling point, gravy will be at its thickest point. Add more stock or cornstarch if needed. Stir in the rest of the ingredients. Taste and add more seasonings if necessary. Cover and let simmer for about 15 minutes. Serve over rice.
