Red Beans and Rice in Crockpot **Pics Page 4 of Complete Process**


Can someone critique my recipe or maybe even someone might try it.

Soak beans overnight of course then next morning add

1Lb Red Beans
1 ham hock
2 onions medium
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
3 bay leaves
2 cloves of garlic minced
1 tsp cumin powder
Pinch of red pepper
7 fl oz Tabasco
Pinch of salt
2 red jalapeños

Cook this on low for 8 hours and final two hours slice 1lb andouille and add to beans in crockpot.

This obviously isn't traditional New Orleans red beans more Natchitoches style.
Cook rice on the side, plate, nd serve

That's a hell of a lot of Tabasco.

I agree. I would use the Tabasco to taste after I've made them.

I use Crystals to taste after I've made them. I find that Tabasco is better to cook them in and Crystals to finish. Just my opinion though.

If you're cooking them that long, you don't really have to soak em


Won't hurt though

I don't know how those would taste like red beans with that amount of Tabasco. Sounds bad to me.

I swirl in some butter before serving. I would also brown the meats, first.

That recipe is similar to mine minus the Tabasco and cumin. I don't soak the beans, and have had no problem with hard beans. I add all my meat from the get go without browning, with no problems.

agree thats a hell of alot of Tabasco.
Add that at the end to taste.

I never use Cumin either.

I would add the andouille at the begining as well, let the beans pick up the smokey flavor.

Also a fan of a tablespoon of butter at the end.

Would you use the same process for white beans?

Assuming you don't have to soak the beans, how much liquid should you start out with in the slow cooker (knowing that the vegetables will give off a good bit)? I want to try doing this.

Cover the ingredients plus maybe a half inch

More if you like them soupy

As usual, mash some beans about30 minutes before eating if you want to thicken it

I'm a big fan of crockpot cooking and a big fan of beans, but I don't know if I would do this. How do the beans turn out compared to those you slow cook on a stove?

Same with me. Do it on the stove for at least 3 hours after boil.

Throw a roux on top of it after you put them in and before you turn it on. Makes a WORLD of difference IMHO. I also like to add some Tasso.
