Reviews for Sausage & Beans with Rice
"This was delicious! It did take a lot longer to cook the rice and I ended up adding the rest of the can of vegetable broth to keep it from drying out but it was worth the wait."
"This was a little too sweet for my liking, but I would make it again with some minor adjustments. It also needs a little seasoning as well. Good starter for an excellent meal."
"Hubby loves any thing with brown sugar. This is a keeper."
"I like sweet, so I liked this recipe. The reason I won't be making it again is that my husband found it to be too sweet for his taste. I did change one thing (which doesn't affect the flavor). I cooked some rice in vegetable broth (instead of using instant rice), then stirred it in and baked it all covered for 15 minutes. I did not uncover and leave in the oven longer because the rice was already cooked."
"I used a whole can of broth and doubled the rice; which made the rice a little tough. I must need to add more liquid. We've made it twice though and plan to make this a weekly dish. Delicious!"
"My kids love this"
"My whole family loved it! So easy to prepare!"
"My family loves this recipe! We actually thought that the sweetness was a great contrast to the spice in this dish. I did try it with healthy Ones smoked sausage and dropped the fat content by A LOT. Couldn't even tell a difference!"
"This was way too sweet. I want to make it again but omitting the brown sugar and the corn syrup. It was very easy to make. I have hopes it will be better without the sweeteners."
