Red Beans and Rice: 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 1 medium-large onion, chopped 1-2 bell peppers, chopped 3 tablespoons garlic, minced 5-6 cups dried red beans, rinsed 1 tablespoon of Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning 1 teaspoon dried thyme Ham bone and pieces of ham: these are optional, but it’ll taste better with them 6 cups of broth (any kind works) 2-4 cups of water (to make liquid up to the 12-14 cup mark in the Instant Pot pot) (*I do a lot of measuring with my heart, so if you want more/less, go for it.) Serve with: Steamed rice Cornbread Coleslaw

Directions:

1. Put ingredients in the Instant Pot: top on, push Manual or Pressure Cook. Set minutes to 55.

2. Wait at least 15 minutes (sometimes I wait more than an hour if I put it on before leaving to go somewhere), then pressure release.

3. Mash beans with a potato masher or large spoon. If beans are not fully cooked, cook for another 15 minutes.


Golden Cornbread* Modified from a recipe from Mary Overby (St. Paul United Methodist, Memphis, TN, 1991)


Ingredients: 1 cup flour 1 cup cornmeal 2 tablespoons sugar ½ teaspoon salt 3 tablespoons baking powder 1 egg 1 cup milk ¼ cup shortening Directions:

*I usually double this for a 12-inch cast iron skillet: don’t double the baking powder.

1. Put shortening in a cast iron skillet. Put in the oven while preheating to 400°.

2. Mix flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt, and baking powder together. Mix milk and egg in a mixing cup. Pour liquids into dry and mix until combined. Pour a little of the melted shortening from the skillet into your batter. Stir to combine, then pour batter into the hot oil and skillet. This will fry the bottom and sides for oh so delicious southern cornbread!

Also, I served it with arepas (our ”bread” in Venezuela but it’s corn based 😂). Excellent and still cheap.

Loved it! A little too watery for my taste but reduced it in Sauté mode. It was really cheap and good 😊

From Holly -

The recipe I found says 4 cups of water for a pound of dried beans. I've never done it in my crockpot, so try it and see how it works. Let us know!

Hello! If cooking this recipe in a crockpot would I use the same amount of liquid called for when using an instant pot? Thank you for your podcast!
