This is a slow cooker recipe. I first made it for a work potluck in '99 and it was a big hit. It's so good on a cold day. Enjoy!

How to Make Black Beans and Rice

Step-by-Step

  1. Brown sliced sausage in a skillet. Drain on towels to remove excess fat.
  2. Put all of the ingredients, except rice, into a large slow cooker.
  3. Cover and Cook 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high. Remove bay leaves before serving. Serve over hot cooked white or brown rice. I say this serves 10 or more per recommended servings but a family of 5-6 could easily finish this off if eating large portions.
