    Trinkets's Note:

    Who better than Paul Prudhomme to rely on when in need of a good red beans and rice recipe? We consider Chef Paul the Papa of Cajun cooking. He's simply the best! The beans need to soak overnight the day before cooking.

      I use a receip almost exact to this one. I have found a good andouille sausage is very important. I use fresh thyme and I add smoked hog maw. You are on the money with the key ingredients...It is nice to see. It was also nice to the Thanx

      I have to give most of this away when I make it because each time I make it, I brag about it and then the beggers come with bowls in hand. It is an awesome recipe. I always make Southern Biscuit Muffins to go with it.

      This is a fantastic recipe! The only things I did different was fresh thyme and oregano (2 tbl each), black pepper (fresh coursley ground), & twice as much ham hock. I also left out the celery and added a bit more himalayan salt & water instead. This is gonna get written in my recipe book for sure.
