Cajun Dirty Rice Dressing

Cajun Dirty Rice Dressing

Dirty rice is a staple around here. We eat it at barbeques, holidays, as a side for fried chicken, or just anytime really. It's really easy to make and feeds a crowd, for not a lot of money. Plus it just tastes good. 

Here are the ingredients:

  • 1 lb of ground meat, pork or beef or both (not lean, 80/20) 
  • 1 1lb tub of Dressing mix (I used Savoie's, but you can make your own if you prefer)
  • 1 onion (chopped) 
  • 1 bell pepper (seeded and chopped) 
  • 5 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 1/4 cup of chopped parsley
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of Cajun seasoning (I'm using Slap ya Mama)
  • 1 to 1 & 1/2 cups of water
  • 6 cups of cooked white rice
  • Chopped green onions  (for garnish)
  • Chopped parsley (for garnish) 

Chop all of your veggies and set aside.

Let it simmer on low for about 20 - 30 minutes. Watch to make sure your water level doesn't drop too much. Add in more if needed. You need to keep it a little liquidy so you're rice dressing isn't dry.
