I found this recipe on an online forum.
Red Beans and Rice
3 pounds dry kidney beans
6 small ham hocks
Soak Beans overnight in 24 cups water.
Drain and add hocks. Put in large pot with 24 cups water. Bring to a boil.
In a skillet heat 1/2 cup fat.
Add: 3 tablespoon chopped garlic
2 cups chopped onion (more if desired)
3 cup chopped celery
3 cup chopped green pepper
Saute for 3 minutes. Add to beans.
Add to beans: 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 Bay leaf
1 1/2 teaspoon thyme
1 Tablespoon Tabasco sauce
1 Tablespoon sugar
salt and black pepper to taste
3 cups chopped tomatoes
Cook over medium heat for 2 hours or until beans are tender. The last hour leave uncovered.
ADD 3 pounds smoked sausage in chunks or slices.
Just before beans are served remove 3 cups and puree then add back to pan. Serve over cooked white rice.
