Add 4 tbsp butter and a glob of oil. Add veggies and sweat down until really soft, remove and set aside.
Wipe pot down and add 2 tbsp of oil and sear sliced sausage until rendered then remove with slotted spoon and retain oil in the pan
Add 4 tbsp butter to the pot until oil and butter simmer lightly. Slowly add flour 1 tbsp at a time and make a dark chocolate roux
Add veggies and simmer until slightly thickened(5 to 10 minutes)
Add chicken stock and stir until incorporated and then add sausage, beans, Cajun seasoning, bay leaves and bring to a simmer
Simmer low,covered but cracked, for about an hour and then check for seasonings, salt to taste but I only did a few grinds of salt (I add 2 to 3 tbsp of crystal hot sauce at this time)
Lightly smash some beans and low simmer for another 15 minutes and serve.
Serve wit rice and top with green onions and crusty bread on the side
