    Default Louisiana red beans and rice

    This is for Barb. I told her I'd email it to her but my computer forgot her email address. It's very good and easy peasy so I hope everyone reads it.

    1 1/2 lbs spicy Cajun sausage sliced 1/2" thick
    1 lb kidney beans (Camellia brand are the best IMO)
    Kosher salt
    1 T. lard (or vegetable oil for those who are afraid of lard)
    1/4 c. olive oil
    2 Poblano peppers or green peppers seeds and veins removed, chopped
    a big onion chopped
    3 fat cloves garlic minced
    2 stalks celery chopped (I use the leaves as well)
    6 c water
    2 bay leaves
    1/2 t cayenne
    1 t thyme
    1/4 t
    sage
    1 t Cajun seasoning


    Rinse beans and soak overnight in large pot with 2 T salt
    Strain, rinse and add to dutch oven with 6 c water
    In a good heavy pan eat lard till shimmering and add sliced sausage. Cook while stirring until brown
    Add veggies and cook until veggies are tender and just starting to brown
    add spices
    stir the veggies and sausage to the Dutch oven
    bring to boil, cover and simmer slowly for about an hour or two until beans are totally tender when you taste them.

    Serve over rice

    I've also have it made with the sliced sausage and clopped onion browned. Then add the water and the soaked beans. Throw in a ton of Cajun seasoning. salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer until done.

    That was good, too. This is a recipe has many variations . But I have never had a bad red beans and rice

    I wonder how much lard you have to eat until you're shimmering?!!
    Sounds great Liz.

    You are making me hungry Liz, that sounds so good. I’m going to try it and I don’t even like to cook. Now I just need a good cornbread recipe to go with it. Yum!

    Thanks Liz, now I just have to find Cajun sausage and Cajun seasoning here. Might have to take a trip to your area for it?? No Cajuns in this part of the US.

    I was afraid of that. You could easily make your own Cajun spice mix but there is no substitute for spicy Cajun sausage. Google suggests Mexican Chorizo. I like chorizo but it it nothing like Cajun sausage. Sorry.

    Don't know, our soon to be SIL gave it to us last week, and said it is spicy. He has
    bagged 4 deer so far this year and is trying for 2 more, the limit. I will give it a try. He told me to cook it in scrambled eggs, I think I want your way though.
