This is my father's recipe which is fairly low in fat, unlike his sister's which has 1/2 pound of butter in it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients in a large heavy pot, dutch oven or stock pot. Make sure the water covers the ingredients by two fingers depth (real scientfic here).
  2. Cover and cook over medium to low heat for about 2 hours stirring occasionally.
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste (adding it sooner will make the beans tough).
  4. Continue to stir occasionally to ensure that the beans aren't sticking and continue to cook until beans are soft (about another 2 hours).
  5. Serve over hot rice.
  6. I usually add some Andouille Sausage during the last 1/2 hour of cooking.
