Dirty Rice

IMG_1868

As I mentioned before, I am a big fan of cajun/creole foods. In turn making it a personal mission to learn how to make all my favorites here at home. I also like to find & develop new rice recipes since my family really enjoys rice. To make this recipe milder if you do not care for heat substitute 1/4 -1/2 cup of green bell pepper for the jalapeno.

Ingredients:

2 cups long grain white rice, prepared per package instructions

3 slices bacon

1/2 lb ground beef

1/2 cup onion, diced

1 stalk celery, diced

1 jalapeno, seeded & finely diced

1 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 cup chicken stock

1 tablespoon cajun seasoning

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

After cooking the rice by the packaged directions. Pour rice out onto a large sheet pan and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the oil to prevent it sticking together.

In a large pan cook the bacon. Once the bacon is cooked remove from the pan and drain on a paper towel. Crumble the bacon.

Add the ground beef, crumbled bacon, onion, celery & jalapeno to the pan. Season with salt & pepper.

Once the beef is browned and broken up with a wooden spoon, and veggies are softened. Deglaze the pan with the chicken stock – by scraping the browned bits at the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.

Add the cajun seasoning – then boil until most of the chicken stock has evaporated.

Then add the cooked rice. Toss until combined.

Serve and enjoy!
