Red Beans and Rice

5 ways to make red beans and rice - from skillet, to instant pot, to slow cooker, to shortcut to slow stewed from dried beans.
An iconic symbol in the Deep South, you'll find some form of Red Beans and Rice in many homes and at most restaurants every Monday in the Deep South. Here are several ways that I personally prepare them - from super speedy for those busy days, to low and slow, homemade from scratch - my personal favorite.



Monday means red beans and rice for supper here in the Deep South. Historically, the lady of the house would bake a ham for Sunday supper and that ham bone would be carried over for a pot of beans the next day, something that could be started on the stovetop and left pretty much unattended while she went about doing laundry and other household chores for the day.

It's a long held tradition that continues to this day, even if nobody is doing any laundry, and you'll find it offered up at just about every meat and three restaurant here, and even in some that are more upscale. Like po'boys, it's a meal that is just part of our lives.

I have four five different ways that I make them, depending on resources and time, so I thought that I'd gather them all up in one place for y'all. We've got you covered for those super busy days where you only have a few minutes to those days that you have the time to let them cook low and slow in the traditional way - my personal favorite. I promise you that they all deliver on flavor. Just click on the titles or photo to go to the recipe!

When you don't want to tend over a stovetop pot, let your slow cooker do the work! These red beans and rice are still made with dried beans and cooked with a ham bone, bacon and smoked sausage, but they go low and slow in your Crockpot all day.
