Red Beans and Rice with Beer BreadI usually make this recipe using dried kidney beans, but time didn't always permit it so I sometimes used canned kidney beans. Either way, it's a simple great tasting recipe. -- NeilIngredients: * 2 lb dry red kidney beans (or equilivent canned approx. 4 cans) * 2 medium onions (chopped) * 1 cup celery (finely chopped) * 6 green onions (chopped) * 1 lb sausage (sliced) * 3 garlic cloves (minced) * cajun seasoning to taste * Wash and soak beans over night (if using dry). * Drain and put into large pot. * Cover with water and bring to boil over high heat. * Stir well and let beans settle. * Add sausage, onions, celery, garlic, and seasoning. * Bring to boil. * Reduce heat and simmer for two to three hours until beans are tender. * For a thicker gravy, remove one cup of beans and mash thru strainer. * Add back to pot and stir. * Serve over hot rice.Note: I personally don't use bell peppers but they can always be added.Makes 6 generous servings.Goes well with beer bread--recipe below!Beer Breadas referenced in the recipe abovesubmitted by Neil DronetThis isn't actually a "cajun" recipe, but I find that it compliments many cajun dishes.It is always a hit when I make it. -- NeilIngredients * 1 12oz regular beer (room temp) * 1/4 cup sugar * 3 1/2 cups "Self Rising" flour * Preheat over to 350 degrees. * Place all ingredients into a mixing bowl. * Mix well with a fork. (Batter may have some small lumps.) * Pour in a 9 inch greased bread pan. (You can even use a non-stick spray) * Spread batter evenly in pan reaching all 4 corners. * Bake for 1 hour 10 minutes. (Since oven times can vary start checking at around 50 minutes.)
