Harbor Restaurant and Bar's Jamaican Rice and Peas (Red Beans and Rice)

Yield:
4 to 6 main dish servings, 8 to 10 side dish servings
Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 1 (16-ounce) package dried red kidney beans
  • 10 cups, plus 4 cups water
  • 3 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1 coconut
  • 3 scallions, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/4 pound butter
  • 4 cups uncooked rice (recommended: Uncle Ben's Converted Rice)
Directions

Bring beans, 10 cups water, and garlic to boil at high heat. Simmer for about 1 hour or until beans are soft.

Crack coconut, remove shell, and cut meat into small pieces. Put half of the coconut into blender with 2 cups water and puree. Repeat for remaining coconut. Strain the coconut through a strainer squeezing the milk out of the coconut (you will end up with approximately 3 cups of coconut milk).

Add coconut milk, scallions, salt, and butter to the beans and bring to a boil. Then add rice and stir with a fork. Turn to low heat and cook for 30 minutes or until water is cooked out. Be sure not to stir the rice until water is gone.
