I haven’t had samp and beans in aeons and even with a pressure cooker am still weary of trying to make it the old-fashioned way, so when I saw the canned variety I thought well I’d give it a try. I made a delicious a spicy Rump Steak Samp and Bean stew. A very hearty meal indeed and nothing was left for my lunch today. Very inconsiderate of them.
