Whisk(e)y Wednesday presented by the Lock & Key Whiskey Bar takes a different turn this week with a little cooking challenge from Bob's Red Mill. They sent me some heritage beans called Orca and I thought there would be no better way to add smoke to them than the Campfire Whiskey from High West Distilling. The orca beans get their name from the black and white coloring similar to a killer whale. After soaking the beans over night I sauteed some red onion and garlic in olive oil then added my soaked beans and the soaking liquid. After simmering for half an hour, I threw in some Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning and a few splashes of High West Whiskey. I let the beans simmer for another hour, adding a little water along the way, until they were tender but not mushy. Served alongside some fried chicken, these orca beans hit the spot!
Here's some news even greater than my meal, though! Bob's Red Mill is offering up a bag of beans and a $30 gift card to purchase whatever you'd like from their site.
