MOMMA’S RED BEANS & RICE – Not Your Typical

  • 2 teaspoons OLIVE OIL
  • 1 large YELLOW or WHITE ONION, chopped
  • 1 GREEN BELL PEPPER, chopped
  • 4 cloves GARLIC, finely minced
  • 2 pounds HAMBURGER meat
  • 1.5 pounds HICKORY SMOKED SAUSAGE (I use Downhome brand made in Stonwall, La)
  • 1/4 teaspoon SALT
  • Fresh Ground PEPPER to your taste
  • 2 cans (6oz) (170g) TOMATO PASTE (I used basil, garlic and oregano flavored)
  • 1 teaspoon dried THYME
  • 1/2 teaspoon ONION POWDER
  • 1/2 teaspoon GARLIC POWDER
  • 1/4 teaspoon CAYENNE PEPPER
  • 6 cans (16oz) (454g) PINTO BEANS (I use Bushes Best)
  • 1 can (14.5oz) (411g) BEEF BROTH

In a large 10 quart Dutch Oven or pot add OLIVE OIL on med low heat. Add ONION, BELL PEPPER and GARLIC and saute for 3 to 5 minutes to soften the veggies. In a separate pan cook the sausage rounds until caramelized. Take up and set aside. Add HAMBURGER meat to the pot of veggies and brown. Season with 1/4 teaspoon SALT and fresh ground PEPPER to your taste. Spoon out any grease. (I use lean meat so I don’t have to drain) Add TOMATO PASTE, stir and cook for a couple of minutes to deepen the tomato flavor. Add the THYME, GARLIC POWDER, ONION POWDER, and CAYENNE and stir in to mix. Add the PINTO BEANS with their juice, the SAUSAGE and the BEEF BROTH to the pot. Stir and cover. Cook on low for 20 minutes stirring occasionally to make sure it doesn’t burn. Serve and enjoy over RICE with a warm piece of buttered cornbread!😊
