  1. Combine red beans, sausage, bay leaf, Cajun seasoning, garlic, onion, celery, green pepper, salt parsley, and cumin in pressure cooker. Pour in water to cover, according to manufacturer's directions (do not go over line inside of pot). Stir to combine.
  2. Seal lid and bring pot to full pressure over high heat. Reduce heat to low, maintaining full pressure, and cook for 30 minutes. Allow pressure to drop naturally. Remove lid, stir, and serve.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I like Conecuh® hickory-smoked sausage from Alabama.
  • Editor's Note:
  • Cajun seasoning varies in heat level and saltiness, so adjust the amount to taste. You can make your own Cajun Spice Mix with this recipe.

Okay y'all, this is pretty good, but as a member of a New Orleans clan, I can tell you, anyone making an authentic dish will first sauté the sausage (I also use Conecuh®) then the veggies in th...

I loved this. Had nice flavor/kick. I pretty much followed recipe to the letter except I couldn't find 16oz size sausage so used 14oz instead. Only issue I had was the cooking time, had to ad...

The flavors of this are good, but after an hour of cooking my beans still weren't quite done. Next time I will soak the beans overnight, then cook for 20 minutes without the sausage, mash the be...

Will not be cooked in 30 minutes -- even with overnight soaking. I only ding it for being so far off on the cooking time, and not recommending soaking the beans. Seasoning mix was very good -- ...

Love this recipe! I've never had much luck getting the beans soft enough with 30 minutes so I let them cook in my Fagor pressure cooker for about 50 minutes. Once that's done, I let the pressur...
