re: The Secret to Popeye's Red Beans - Stadium Rat

[/quote]That's just beans cooked a long time without being stirred frequently. The more you stir, the more they fa...

Adding any kind of fat makes the beans creamier, you know, like Natchitoches style. I remember seeing a cooking show where the cook added Crisco in huge spoonfuls for that reason. I'm not sure what show. Did Great Chefs ever do RB&R?...

[quote]Fitz claimed you can recreate the Popeyes flavor by adding a few puréed hot dogs ( not sure the number) to your pot of red beans. Never tried it.[/quote]That was mentioned right before the other comment. He said to use 1 pound of Oscar Mayer Weiners. Not the beef ones. Put in a blender and...
