Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut casing off sausage by slicing lengthwise to remove casing.
  2. Heat oil in large pot over medium heat. Add onion and garlic. Sauté almost until soft, about 2 minutes.
  3. Pull off small pieces off sausage with your fingers and add to pot (no need to slice, raw sausage doesn’t slice too well!). Brown sausage, stirring often for a few minutes.
  4. Add beans. Stir.
  5. Add in the seasonings, using the seasoning to your liking, except for chicken stock. Stir so all seasoning is evenly distributed. Add salt and pepper to your liking. Do a little taste test. If you like more seasoning, add more. Remember, the seasoning will marry in the next few hours, and really taste great! Stir in a little chicken stock, then stir. Look at the beans, they should not look watery, but like a very thick stew.
  6. Bring to a slight boil, then cover and simmer 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  7. Garnish with fresh parsley, chopped onion, chopped green onion.
