Let the sweet music of saxophones, trumpets, and trombones dance through your kitchen as you get lost in the bewildering tunes of Louisiana jazz. Put on Louis Armstrong’s greats and be swept away to the cobble stones of the French Quarter. Allow the culture of Louisiana be your guide as you embark on today’s culinary mission of Louisiana Red Beans & Rice Stew.
Slowly simmer the stew accompanied by the brassy perfection of the trumpet to create our Louisiana Red Beans & Rice Stew. Embrace the amazing flavors of Cajun seasoning with dried oregano and garlic to spice up the dish. Then add Andouille sausage and rice as an ode to Louisiana’s finest. The big band of the Bayou will be incredibly impressed with your dish, and so will you.
