Red Beans & Rice.....Slow Cooked in the Crockpot

No fuss cooked red beans and rice, just plop those babies in the crockpot and forget about them for 6 hours, total cook time is 8 hours. No soaking these little stinkers either. How cool is that! I love to cook in the crockpot when there is a chill in the air. Easy, inexpensive and tasty gets me every time. Get your bean fix here!
  • 1 16 oz. bag dry small red beans
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 3 links Andouille sausage about 6" long, cut into slices
  •       ( I used AMYLU Andoullie chicken sausage )
  • 1 cup dry white or brown rice cooked according to package directions
  • Hot Sauce, I used Cholula, original

I used a small 3 quart crockpot and added the first six ingredients, mix together well. Cover and cook on high for 6  hours ( cooking for a total of 8 hours), then add sausage to cook for the last 2 hours. Cook rice just before serving or use some leftover rice, minute rice or frozen rice if you do not want to cook any. Spoon some rice on your plate and top with the bean mixture with some drops of hot sauce to suit your taste. We also ate it without the rice and it was good that way too. Enjoy!
