How to Make Authentic, Louisiana Red Beans and Rice
1Place the beans and water into a slow cooker.
2Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the sausage in the skillet; remove from the skillet with a slotted spoon and transfer to the slow cooker. Reserve the drippings.
3Add onion, green pepper, jalapeno pepper and garlic to the drippings; cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes.
4Transfer everything from the skillet to the slow cooker.
5Season the mixture with pepper and Creole seasoning.
6Add the smoked ham hock. Cover and cook on low for about 8 hours, or until beans are tender.
7If the bean mixture seems too watery, take the lid off the slow cooker and set heat to High to cook until they reach a creamy texture.
