Print this Recipe    Crockpot Black Beans and Rice

1 1/2 lb dried black turtle beans
1 lg bell pepper, diced
1 hot pepper (optional)
tabasco (optional)
4 onions, diced
6 cloves garlic, chopped
3/4 c celery, diced
1/4 c parsley, chopped
2 tb oregano, chopped
2 tb basil, chopped
2 bay leaves
pinch ground cloves
1/2 ts ground cumin
4 beef boullion cubes
1 lb lean bulk pork sausage
1 lb pork, boneless cubed
1 lb stew beef chunks
1/2 lb ham, smoked (1/2" cubes)
1 1/2 lb smoked link sausage cut into 1" to 2" lengths
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tb vinegar

Beans: Wash and look for gravel then soak overnight in a bowl being
sure beans are well covered with water. For cooking use a large
crock pot.

Meats: First, brown bulk sausage in a skillet and pour off excess
grease. Add other meats and stir to brown. Add bell pepper, onion,
garlic, celery, and spices. Salt and pepper moderately, taste after
cooking several hours and add more if needed.

Add beans and soak water. If necessary add more water to cover
entire ingredients by at least two inches. Stir in four bouillon
cubes. Cover and cook on crock pot high for three hours then turn
to low for at least six hours.

I enjoy hot and spicy foods so I like to add the hot pepper (jalapeno,
habanero or whatever you like) and Tabasco. If you don't like it
hot, then leave them out or serve the Tabasco at the table.

Serve beans and meat over rice. I have found brown rice to be quite
tasty but white rice is fine too. Serve in a soup bowl and top with
fresh chopped onion.
