Dirty rice is a traditional Louisiana Creole dish made from white rice which gets a “dirty” color from being cooked with small pieces of pork, beef or chicken, green bell pepper, celery, and onion, and spiced with cayenne and black pepper. Parsley and chopped green onions are common garnishes.
HOW TO MAKE DIRTY RICE IN 3 EASY STEPS!
I transferred browned ground meat (at least a pound) to plate on paper towel… while I sautéed the “holy trinity” ➡️ onion (1/2 or small whole), celery (1 large stalk) & green pepper (1/2 or 1). Then added meat back into veggies, add a couple cloves minced garlic, chopped roasted red peppers, cajun seasoning (tbsp or to taste), S&P (tsp each?), dash crushed red pepper flakes or cayenne, rice (1 1/2 cups) and broth (3 1/2 cups; I used beef & a little bit of chicken bouillon), bring to boil, reduce to simmer, cover and cook 20 to 23 minutes. Taste for seasoning adjustment. Serve topped with chopped parsley or scallions (optional) and if a wuss like me…serve with dairy (sour cream, yogurt, glass of MILK 🤣)🌶🥵
The chunk of green peppers in center below 😉 is from using already chopped peppers from my freezer 😁🌶
I added roasted red peppers 🌶
I also add Better than Bouillon, along with dry bouillon; half & half, because I like both 😍
The Goya Sazón … why not? 🤭 color at the least.
Okay, confession: I had to dollop some sour cream on mine! 🔥 spicy! 🥵🌶🌶🌶
