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. 


  • 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


  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.
