Red Beans and Rice in Yankee Land.


Any of you with a bit of time want to help a South LA LSU boy? Run a deli up here (NH-VT), and we are doing Red Beans and rice for Monday. Gotta start changing these people. Some of you have come by and said hey and tried the BBQ we now do. On one such visit, two great people came up here and it was great seeing some LA people. This was during the Boston Bombings. They are trying to get me some LA Sausage to our store and have not been able to, so all we have now is really pretty good sausage and a ton of spices from up here. Any advice as to the best way to cook R&R would greatly be helpful. We have already soaked the beans over night. TIA, and come see us.
ps I miss ya'll bad but its only 75 right now, yum.

Why don't you just order the sausage on your own? It's not that difficult over the Internet these days.

that Besh recipe is simple and solid.

OP .. be sure to serve some greens and cornbread with the rb&r!

also .. at the end when I remove the bay leaves I hit the beans with an immersion blender right quick to get a more soupy consistency. not enough to blend it all up but to break up some of the beans

What type of sausage do you intend on serving? Smoked, fresh? I prefer fresh sausage pan fried over smoked sausage.

If you can find Paul Prudhomme 's recipe, the seasonings he uses are excellent.

Well, that seemed to take forever, but it's done. Not bad but not great. Had to improvise on some things. Gonna try it on a few customers as a Cajun Monday thing. We shall see. It may be a batch just for me-the sausage is king in this. One last question-Is there a particular rice I should use today or will any do? Thanks again for all the help.
I used the Besh way, but was way short on a few things.

I have recently discovered Jasmine rice. I like that it's less starchy and doesn't get mushy.
So good I can eat it plain.

Here's two tricks I learned from an old black lady.

Chicken broth instead of water (or atleast one container of it)-on top of the beans in the pot, and a half stick of butter in there.
Makes a wonderful difference.
