    True Texas's Note:

    Or as we call them "Red Beans" in Texas. I've been making "Red Beans" for as long as I've been cooking, but I saw Paula make her's on the Foodnet Work and I liked the way she cooked her "ham hocks" and saved the liquid for the beans. The whole onion is a different twist on my way of cooking beans, too. It calls for her "house seasoning" but I just broke it down. These are wonderful, trust me.

      I am sorry, but there was no flavour to these beans. Perhaps there is something missing in the instructions? I doubled the recipe, so maybe that threw it off?
