    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 6 slices bacon, pre-cut it into little pieces (freeze it for a few minutes for easier cutting)
    • 1/2 green pepper (chopped or sliced thin)
    • 1 medium onion (chopped or sliced thin)
    • 3 garlic cloves, minced (or if I run out-garlic powder equalling 3 cloves garlic)
    • 2 (15 ounce) cans kidney beans, undrained
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 -2 teaspoon salt (I like sea or kosher)
    • 1 Polish sausage, sliced (you can put any kind you like or up to a pound- we like the skinless kielbasa)
    • 1 tablespoon vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • 1 cup cooked rice

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large, heavy saucepan, saute bacon until lightly browned.
    2. 2
      Remove all but 2 tablespoons fat.
    3. 3
      Add onion, green pepper and garlic, saute until soft.
    4. 4
      Add remaining ingredients except vinegar, sugar and rice. Simmer uncovered for 15-20 minutes.
    5. 5
      Stir in vinegar and sugar for last few minutes then serve over rice.
    6. 6
      *note: this recipe I've found hinges on the bacon You need good (perhaps cheap) bacony bacon, not extra lean, you want that tasty bacon- I usually up the bacon amount to half a package or more :).
    7. 7
      *variations: omit sausage for side dish-also.after all steps, mix with rice and throw in crockpot on warm and rice will soak up juice;.instead of sausage use boneless chicken.

      I can't seem to make a recipe without adapting it to my tastes, so I won't give stars on this one, only comments. I used only one can of beans, about 3/4lb lean turkey Kielbasa diced, and I skipped the vinegar and sugar. I accidentally drained the beans so I added vegetable broth; and I couldn't resist adding just a couple tablespoonfuls of tomato sauce too -- actually, I used Marinara sauce, which I had on hand. Wow but did it smell heavenly while cooking! This doesn't taste like red beans and rice I've had before, but it was really good! I didn't want to spoil it by adding the rice ;)

      I think that I would have given this recipe 5 stars, but I have to value the opinion of my BH. I felt this was a good combination of flavors, and I agree, add more bacon (I used a low-sodium). My BH thought it was a bit dry and thought some tomato sauce would have been nice in this. I suggested some chicken broth instead. Maybe even use extra to cook the rice in for added flavor. We used red beans instead of kidneys and low-fat kilbasa. I enjoyed it and so did my 17 year old son, who's been very picky lately on his dinner choices. I would love to do this again with the extra perks. Thanks for the insperational meal missjuliee!

      Being a Michigander, this is a first eating red beans and rice--and they are great. Or at least I thought so...dinner was postponed, so I followed missjuliee's crockpot suggestion. Unfortunately, the aroma and sight of them was too much--hardly enough for anyone else now. Thanks!
