Introduction

In my book, there are a few things people are looking for when they cook in a Crock Pot. First thing is simplicity. People want to throw some ingredients into the Crock Pot and let the Pot do all the work. Second thing is that they want the food to be table ready when they get home from work or the kids get home from school. Finally the 3rd thing is that it has to taste amazing. The food needs to taste like someone was standing over the stove tending to the food all day. These Red Beans and Rice are all those things.

    1 cup red beans

    1 smoked ham hocks(smoke turkey or other smoked meats will work)

Tips

Due to the slow ramp up, and even heating of a slow cooker, recipes featured on this site can be cooked in a range of slow cooker sizes. Recipes can be increased or decreased by one quart size per the cooking instructions.


Directions

1) Add all ingredients to the Crock Pot (EXCEPT SALT, BOUILLION & SAUSAGE) Cover the pot and cook on high for 5 hours.

2) If the beans are tender after the 5 hours you can add your salt and bouillon cubes. (Note: If you add the salt before the beans are tender your beans will be tough)

3) Add your sausage 2 to 3 hours before dinner time.

You can prepare your rice ahead of time or about 1 hour before you are ready to eat. It's that simple, 1 2 3 dinner! These beans will taste like you've been slaving over them for hours.
