This is a really great meal to have on a cold winter's day (which we may only have about 1 or 2 a year here in south florida!!) we just crank up the AC!!
This recipe is another winner.....I had some leftovers last night for dinner and I think it gets better with age too!!

Cooking Time: 3 hours
Servings: 6-8

1 lb dried red beans, picked over and rinsed
8 oz. ham hock
2 cups onion, chopped
4 carrots, sliced
3 ribs celery, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup parsley, minced
2 bay leaves
1 tbsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp black pepper
3 generous dashes of tabasco
1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
1 lb smoked sausage, cut into pieces
2 cups cooked rice


Soak beans overnight in warm water to cover. Drain just before using. Put drained beans, ham hock and 2 quarts of water in a stock pot. Cover and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 45 minutes. Add onion, carrots, celery, garlic, green pepper, parsley, spices, tabasco sauce, worcestershire sauce and tomato sauce. Cook slowly for one hour, stirring occasionally. Add sausage. Cook for an additional 45 minutes. Note: the dish could be prepared in advance to this point and refrigerated. Before serving, bring to boil, lover heat and simmer for 30-40 minutes. Remove bay leaf, ham hock. Remove meat from bone and cut into bite sized pieces. Add meat to mixture.

Cook rice according to package directions.

Serve bean mixture over rice.
