    The first picture-pork bones & hocks in the stew long range for red beans & rice! Let it sit overnight we will be adding red beans tomorrow-pork bones, hocks, bay leaf, s & p. Also dried bell peppers red & green. More details as they develop. Simmer all night.

    Oh, man!

    You need to detail this recipe and put it in the WIKI.  (PLEASE??)

    Red beans and rice are awesome!

    Thank you!

    I'm still a bit unclear on the procedure, though.  Do you put the bones and hocks in with the above ingredients to simmer overnight, or do you make a stock from them (the bones and hocks) first?

    I apologize for being so dense, and I appreciate you for sharing this.

    My froiiend,

    Right now, I have based on some research have 3 or 4 shoulder bones in the crock pot with bay leaf, s&p, etc.

    Will let it simmer until tomorrow-film at 11:00 :)

    1 package small red beans or kidney beans
    1 medium onion coarsely chopped
    1 green bell pepper chopped (discard seeds and insides of pepper)
    3 bay leaves
    2 large cartons chicken broth
    4 ham shanks (hocks will do if you can't find shanks, but shanks are so much better!)
    1 lb smoked sausage (andouille sausage is great as well and considered the most authentic if you can find it)
    Celery tops chopped (optional)
    Garlic powder, onion powder & pepper to taste

    Rinse the beans well and cover with cold water the night before1 The next morning pour off the water and rinse the beans well with cold water again. Place in your favorite dutch oven or stock pot.2 Cover with chicken broth, adding the onion, bell pepper, ham shanks, bay leaf and celery tops if you plan to use them. Season with garlic powder, onion powder & pepper. Do not salt ! The chicken broth and ham shanks add plenty of salt.

    Bring to a rapid boil and turn down to medium low. Cover and cook approximately 4 to 6 hours or until beans are tender and the broth begins to thicken adding more broth if it cooks down too low.

    • 1 carrot, chopped
    • 1 large onion, chopped

    I really do appreciate you sharing this with us, but the last recipe that you posted (while looking like it would work) is completely different from the previous 2 recipes that you posted.

    So, I'm just wondering exactly what the recipe and procedure that you are using is because I damn sure want to make some authentic red beans and rice.

    Thanks if you can help me with this.

    This one sounds good but I didn't have the broth thawed out:

    • 1 carrot, chopped
    • 1 large onion, chopped
