Red beans are a big part of Southern culture. In Louisiana, it is a Monday tradition served with rice. Why Monday? Monday was traditionally "wash day". So folks would put on a pot of red beans while they did the laundry. Like all Southern country boys, it was a staple in our house as long as I can remember. A tradition which still continues today. This is my twist on that classic Southern dish. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
