These were AWESOME!! I used great northern beans- but kept everything else the same. I used my crockpot after I soaked the beans overnight. Put the beans in 1st and let them cook alone for 1 hr. on high. I sauteed the vegetables then added the ham to the skillet for about 10-15 min. I then placed it in the crockpot and let it cook with the beans all day on low. Served over rice. These were enjoyed by everyone. Thank you so much!! Made for herb of the month tag.
My family likes their beans meaty so I added smoked sausage in addition to the ham. The diversity of this dish reminded me. I've always had the opinion that there is one thing with which I will never become bored...eating.
Delicious! I took a major short cut by using 2 cans of beans after sauteing the onion, peppers, celery, and ham. My ham wasn't very smoky so I added a packet of Goya Sazon. I let this simmer while the rice was cooking and it turned out great, very warm and hearty. I will definitely be make this again but as written. Thanks for sahring!
Delicious! I used great northern beans and smoked pork chops, as well as ham hocks. I couldn't find a small enough package of good ham; the pork chops worked beautifully. Also I used 1 T salt and 1 Tony Chachere's seasoning rather than 2 T salt.
This was very good, however when I tasted the liquid I felt it was a bit bland so I added about 2 tablespoons of chicken bouillon and tons of black pepper along with more cayenne than it called for. I did not make the rice simply because I ran out of time. I am not fond of beans but my husband lives for them and he liked this very much and what is surprising is I did too, I can't wait to have them again tonight as a side dish, I bet they are even better today!
I made this last weekend and we just finished off the last of it today. It made a ton! We cooked in our crockpot on low and the house smelled yummy all day. Very filling and great flavor. The only change I made was reducing the salt by half. Thanks Jennie! Made for PAC Spring 2009.
This is exactly how my Daddy liked his white beans. I made them and substituted Tasso for the Ham, just to give it a little kick. Served it with a skillet of Cornbread, some fresh picked green onions and sliced tomatoes from the garden. Yum. Brought back nice memories of my Dad. Thanks for posting.
I make this for the kids at my son's school - and it's loved by all. As most of the children are vegetarian, I omit the ham and add tomato instead.
This is also the way I've been making it since my father taught me to cook. I'm from New Orleans and white beans don't get any better than this! Kit
DELICIOUS!! As a Cajun living away from home, this one brought me back! To me this equates childhood comfort food!The recipe is great JUST as it is written! I encourage anyone and everyone to TRY THIS! Thanks for sharing it with us.* Made for PAC.
