As my son spent some time down in the south, (Texas and Louisiana), he acquired a great love for southern food. Needless to say, he is always asking me to cook some of his favorites. One of those favorites is Dirty Rice. I found this recipe on southernplate.com. The only thing I changed was to add both ground beef and sausage to the recipe. This was absolutely delicious! He was absolutely thrilled that I made it and I was absolutely thrilled it was so good!!
1 lb. uncooked sausage or ground beef. I used 1/2 pound each.
1-2 Tablespoons Creole Seasoning (Tony Chachere's)
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
2 Tbsp. minced garlic
2 Tbsp. dried chopped parsley
In a large skillet, cook the celery, bell pepper, garlic, onion, parsley, sausage and ground beef.
Cook until the meet is thoroughly cook. Drain excess fat. Add the creole seasoning and mix in.
Stir in the rice and continue cooking over medium heat until the rice is heated through, stirring well the whole time.
(The Creole seasoning can be added slowly according to how much spice you like.)
