One of the first recipes I learned when I began to cook. Great on really freezing nights or that first cold snap during the fall!

1 lb
dried kidney beans (soaked overnight in water)
1 large
onion, chopped
3-4 clove
garlic, minced
1 lb
smoked pork or bacon, chopped like lardons
1 lb
kielbasa sausage, chopped into bite size pieces
salt and pepper to taste
about 10 cups of water give or take


1Drain kidney beans and place in a dutch oven.
2Add everything except for the sausage. Sausage will be added at the very end.
3Cook on high heat until it boils. Lower temperature to simmer. Cook until kidney beans are bite tender and the stew has become thick. Add more water if necessary.
4Add the sausage and stir stew. Turn off heat and serve.
5I usually serve this with steamed rice and jalapeño cornbread.
