Cajun Style White Beans
|White beans||1 Pound|
|Cajun trinity||2 Cup (32 tbs)|
|Minced garlic||2 Tablespoon|
|Creole seasoning||To Taste|
|Tabasco sauce||To Taste|
|Long grain rice||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Oil||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
First you should soak the White Beans overnight in a large bowl. Cover the beans with water leaving room for expansion.
Ready to cook. Heat the Slow Cooker on high heat. Drain the water from the beans and then pour beans into the Slow Cooker.
Sauté the Cajun Trinity in a small amount of oil or cooking spray. (My husband Mike just tosses the trinity in the with the beans without sautéing.)
Slice the sausage into 1 inch pieces and fry in a pan until brown. We actually grilled the Andouille sausage the night before while we had a hot grill from grilling a steak.
Mix all ingredients together into Slow Cooker. Add 4-5 cups of water to cover the mixture. Add about ½ teaspoon of Tony’s Creole Seasoning and a few dashes of Tabasco sauce. Mix well.
Cover and let the Slow Cooker do its job for 6-8 hrs. Since each Slow Cooker is different, feel free to add small amounts of water if needed after a few hours. You don’t want it to get too dry.
Beans are ready when soft and creamy gravy is created.
