    Turned out Delicious!
    J&C Cox a year ago
    This came out really tasty. I didn't have dry beans and had to use canned, so I had to step back and punt some. I ended up adding in 4 cups of chicken stocks to the veggies and then adding the rice, giving it a good stir to blend, then the ham hock, sausage, and herbs & seasoning. I brought it to a boil then reduced to a simmer and let cook, covered, for about 30 minutes. Then I added the beans on top, covered it back up and let it go for another 30 minutes. This worked out really well - a perfect comfort dish on a cold night. Lots of leftovers too! Will definitely make again.

    This was so good! My family loved it! I added a little more creole seasoning than it called for. I also used canned beans instead of dry beans because I didn’t have a lot of time. I still cooked it for about a hour and fifteen minutes. I will definitely make this again!
