Spicy Horseradish Coleslaw on Dad's Red Beans and Rice

I can't claim this amazing red beans and rice recipe. My dad taught me how to make it when I left for college. My dad likes to put coleslaw on his red beans and rice. So when I moved out I came up with my own recipe. 

Ingredients: 

  • 4 cups of shredded cabbage or 1 bag of coleslaw mix
  • 1/2 cup of mayo
  • 2 tablespoons of white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of horseradish mustard
  • 1 teaspoon of horseradish 
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Mix it all together and enjoy on top of a steaming bowl of red beans and rice! 

Here is my dad's recipe: 

  • 2 lbs of red beans
  • 3 cups of  brown rice, uncooked 
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 3 tablespoons of Tony's Creole Seasoning, more if you need it
  • Weber's Garlic and Herb Seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions: 

  1. Soak red beans for about 36 hours in advance. You will have to add water multiple times most likely. 
  2. Put the red beans and water in a Crockpot and cook on high for 4 hours and low for 20 hours or until the red beans form a gravy.
  3. Sautee chopped red bell peppers, onions, and seasonings until tender.
  4. Add peppers, onions, and seasonings to red beans and cook for at least 1 more hour. 
  5. Follow instructions on your bag of rice.
  6. Top with coleslaw and plenty of Crystal's Louisiana Hot Sauce.
