I was looking at a cookbook the other day and came across a recipe for red beans that called for using kielbasa as an ingredient. I've always used a good smoked sausage or a ham hock in mine and have never even seen them made with anything else. I thought that kielbasa would be kind of non-authentic. But then, I don't live in the area so who am I to judge?
My question is- does anyone in New Orleans ever use kielbasa in their red beans?
