Red Beans and Rice

Really good. Miss Debbie gave me this recipe.

2 C onion, chopped
1/2 C green pepper, chopped
1 1/3 tsp garlic, minced
2 tsp parsley, minced
1 lb. ham, cubed
1 lb pickled pork in large pieces or fresh pork
1 large ham bone
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper
2 bay leaves
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/8 tsp dried basil
2 quarts cold water
2 lbs dried red beans

Boiled white rice
chopped green onions

Put red beans in a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil and let boil for 2 minutes.
Turn the heat off and let soak 2 hours.

Drain beans and add all other ingredients and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and let simmer 21/2 to 3 hours or until beans are tender. Check occasionally and add more water if it gets too thick.

Serve with rice and chopped green onion and Louisiana hot sauce.
