Ingredients

How to make it

  • Pick through beans to remove bad beans; rinse thoroughly. Soak overnight. (Change water every 2-4 hours when possible)
  • In an 8 quart stock pot (or 7qt. cast iron Dutch oven), add the bacon grease and let dissolve on medium heat.
  • Once dissolved, add onion, green pepper, garlic, green onions and sauté until the onions are translucent.
  • Add seasoning mix, hot sauce, Worcestershire Sauce and mix well.
  • Add beans, water and ham hocks. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low-med. Cover and cook over low-med heat for about 6 hours. (stir beans at least once an hour)
  • After 6 hours, remove ham hocks, let cool, remove the ham from hocks and discard the bone and fat. Add the ham and Andouille sausage to the beans and cook 2 more hours or until beans are tender. (stirring the beans at least once an hour)
  • If beans are too watery, bring beans to a low boil and cook uncovered stirring very frequently so the beans don’t burn until the desired thickness is achieved.
  • Serve over hot cooked rice.
