Red Beans and Rice

This recipe serves: 
Ingredients
1 cup red beans, dried
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 large onion, chopped

6 ounces boneless smoked pork chops, diced
4 ounces andouille or smoked sausage, diced (optional)
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 1/2 cups water
1 cup steamed rice
Cooking Instructions
1. Soak the beans overnight in enough water to cover them,

2. Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until tender, about 6 minutes.
