First, get yourself a big pot, a REALLY big pot. I used a 5-qt dutch oven, only 1 lb. of sausage instead of two, and it was up to the top. I followed the recipe except for using Hillshire Farm Chicken Hardwood Smoked Sausage (seriously tastes just like smoked sausage) and used 1 lb instead of 2 lb (it was what I had on hand). This recipe does take some time, but it’s worth the effort. I think the timing is off on a few things. The beans will take longer to become soft, and the vegetables will take less time to cook. I left this simmer for several hours, the consistency ended up being perfect, and although this recipe definitely is different, this is a very good version of red beans and rice.
