|1||lb||Beans, red; dried|
|1||lb||Sausage, smoked link; cut 1"|
|1/2||lb||Ham, smoked; cubed|
|1||cn||Tomatoes; undrained (16oz)|
|1||Garlic clove; crushed|
|Pepper; to taste|

Sort and wash beans. Cover with water, and bring to a boil; cover and cook 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and let stand 1 hour. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer until beans are almost tender (1-1/2 to 2 hours).
Add remaining ingredients except rice to beans; continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until beans are tender and a thick gravy is formed. If necessary, add more water to keep beans from sticking. Serve over rice.
