I have been trying to duplicate the wonderful red beans and rice we ate at Kosher Cajun in New Orleans. I copied a recipe from someone from Louisiana, bought a kosher version of Louisiana sausage and used a nice fresh bag of dried red beans and onions and it came out tasting like the worst version of refried beans with little pieces of sawdust.
Very expensive sawdust, I might add.
Have any Chowhounds ever managed to make Louisiana style red beans for Shabbat?
Thanks in advance,
So Cal Mother
PS We tried putting hot dogs into cholent once with the same sad result. We hoped it would taste like baked beans and hotdogs and instead it tasted like baked beans and sawdust.
