"This recipe was given to me by my sister. It's a hearty dish, and wonderful for the cold winter months. To make a little meatier, I cut up a small ham steak in cubes and add the cubed ham the last 20 minutes. Serve over cooked rice. "

This was SO GOOD!!! The flavor combo with all the spices was perfect!! I didn't have enough dried garlic so I used fresh, and thats the only change!!! My ham hock had a ton of meat so I cut b...

awesome seasoning...was in a hurry, boiled, heavy simmer, the beans and seasononings / not w/ the sausage, for 40 minutes...., added to slow cooker w/ browned sausage (andouille) for 6 hours.......

Finally, a recipe that involves dried beans, just like paw paw used to make. A little lagniappe, whoever gets the bay leaf in their beans has to do the dishes.
