Authentic Louisiana Red Beans and Rice Recipe
I grew up in Louisiana and love red beans and rice; these are just like I remember--red beans made with Cajun seasonings and Andouille sausage. This is a great Sunday supper.
This is my take on a Louisiana classic. No shortcuts! Put everything into the slow cooker in the morning and you will have your meal ready in the late afternoon or evening, whenever you are ready. This recipe will feed a lot of people.

This is an easy and delicious take on a Louisiana classic that you can prepare and cook in 40 minutes! I use turkey kielbasa to cut down on the fat, but not the flavor.
This is delicious my husband could not stop talking about how good it tasted. I wanted to make it that day so I used 4 cans of red kidney beans vs the dried beans. I used 3/4 chicken broth and 1/4 water. I did not omit any ingredients and added the andouille sausage the last hour of cooking. When I made the rice I used chicken broth instead of water. I would definitly make this again and recommend this recipe.
This is a really great red beans and rice recipe. I followed the directions and also followed the advice of others. I added 2 hamhocks and used 4 cups of chicken broth and 2 cups of water when cooking the beans. I also made golden sweet corn bread and a peach pie (also from this site) and finally got to use my new rice cooker. Again thanks for a great recipe, my family loved it. Oh and don't forget to pick up a bottle of picka peppa sauce. When you add a few dashes to your bowl it really adds to the flavor.
I don't enjoy speaking negatively, but this just isn't a proper red beans and rice recipe. There's not nearly enough seasoning for the amount of ingredients, and there're too many vegetables for the bean & water ratio. I naturally season with salt and pepper in stages whenever I cook but am incredibly confused that there is no inclusion of salt in the seasonings whatsoever. I understand in other recipes because you usually start off by rendering bacon lardons - and including a good hamhock tends to add extra flavour - but this was just bland as all hell. I thought it would be okay since my girlfriend enjoys bland food, yet she won't even eat it! Now I've got roughly 2 quarts of this stuff sitting in my fridge and I can't bring myself to throw it out, so instead I'm forcing myself to eat it, begrudgingly. Hate to leave a bad review, but this just ain't the business.
