I love this recipe, there may be a lot out there similar but this is my creation. And I forgot to take a picture, so the picture is courtesy a free stock photo LOL.
Red Beans & Rice Large pot full....
2 lb Red Beans (soaked overnight and rinsed)
16 oz. long grain rice (2-3 more water when adding rice)
6 cups water
2 links Cajun Sausage sliced
2 cups Tomatoes
1 Green Bell Pepper chopped
1 lg Onion (2 1/2cp) chopped
4 cloves Garlic
2 St. Celery chopped
6 oz pork shredded
2 Tbsp Cajun Mix
1 tsp. Thyme
1/2 Tsp. Sage
1 tsp. Parsley
2 bay leafs
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
Add everything to Crock pot except rice and extra water. Place on high for 4 hours. Then add more water and the rice and cook on high for 4 hours. Stir frequently.
Enjoy. I'm not even going to tell you how many calories are in this. Let's just say, keep it to a small portion as you do with everything else, and have this for a party or special occasion.
A crisp sweet white wine goes well with this.
