Authentic, No Shortcuts, Louisiana Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2013
Great flavor but the recipe needs some tweaking. Otherwise, I would have given it 5 stars. So simple to put together. Ten cups of liquid is WAY too much, though. It was pretty soupy even after I mashed some of the beans. I had to add corn starch to thicken it up and then let it cook with the lid off for a couple hours longer than the recipe says to get it to the right consistency. Next time, I'd go with about 6 cups of liquid instead of 10. I used chicken stock instead of water which gave it a really nice flavor. I would definitely make this again, just with a few changes.
