Red Beans and Rice

0.0/5 rating (0 votes)

Ingredients

  • 2 cups red kidney beans
  • 5 strips bacon, cut up
  • 1/2 cup uncooked rice
  • 2 1/2 quarts water
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Soak beans overnight in 1 quart of water in a heavy pot.

  2. Drain. Add another 1 1/2 quarts of water, bacon, garlic, and a little salt.

  3. Simmer slowly for 3 - 4 hours until beans are very soft, and water has cooked down to a thick red sauce.

  4. For thickening the beans, a little Cajun secret is to mash some of the beans against the side of the pan duringthe last half hour of cooking.

  5. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve over cooked hot, fluffy rice.
