DIRECTIONS

  • Wash beans.
  • In a large Dutch oven, cover beans in cold water and soak overnight. (or use fast method - put beans in water, bring to boil, cover and let stand for a couple hours).
  • When the beans are ready to cook, add the onion, bell pepper, garlic, bay leaf and (optional) ham-bone with some meat on it.
  • Add enough additional water to cover the beans by at least 3 inches.
  • Cook slowly stirring occasionally until beans are tender, approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  • In the last 30 minutes of cooking mash some of the beans to thicken the gravy.
  • Add the smoked sausage and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • (The heat may be increased to evaporate excess water if the beans are too watery.).
  • Stir to prevent sticking.
  • Serve over steamed rice.
