New Orleans-Style Red Beans and Rice with Fresh Ham Hocks
This long simmering dish lets you out of the kitchen while it cooks.
"Pretty good. I like to include celery and bell peppers with the onions and lightly saute before adding beans and water. If fresh hamhocks not available, smoked (easier to find) will suffice, but will alter original recipe flavor."- ghostdog19
