Good old boys barbecued beans

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Dry red kidney beans; *see note
3 tablespoons Bacon fat
1 large Yellow onion; finely chopped
1 Green bell pepper; chopped fine
2 Cloves garlic; minced
1 Meaty ham hock
1 Bay leaf
1 dash Thyme
1 dash Tabasco
1 dash Salt
4½ cup Water
2 tablespoons Chopped parsley

*NOTE: Canned beans can be used, but they are not as good. Soak beans overnight in water. Drain the beans. In a heavy iron pot, melt the bacon fat and saute the onion, green bell pepper, and garlic for 3 to 4 minutes until softened. Add the beans and all the remaining ingredients except the parsley. Bring to a boil and boil rapidly for 10 minutes, then lower the heat. Cover the pot and cook slowly over low heat for 4 hours, stirring from time to time. When cooked, add the parsley and stir, replacing the cover. Let the beans cool slightly. Serves 4. Serving suggestions: Serve over hot boiled rice as a main course dish.

Lynn's notes: Made this 11-06-97 to go along with baked biscuit sandwiches. I served it plain as a side dish. Great recipe!
