The recipe has been a long time coming. I have been cooking my dirty rice the lazy way for years, but not anymore!
Typically, I used Zatarain's dirty rice mix to cook my dirty rice. It is a great alternative to cooking the dirty rice from scratch; especially when time is limited and dinner needs to be done asap.
Sometimes we just get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life and end up cooking more from a box than necessary.
I still work a 9-5 so a definitely know how it feels to want to get dinner done and out of the kitchen after a long day's work. That's why our version of dirty rice was made as seamless as possible.
If you have leftover white rice, half of your work is done. I browned the bell pepper and onion with my meat.
It's just easier that way and you would sauté the veggies in a little oil anyway, so why not just let the oil from the meat do the work. So let's get into it so I can show you how it's done!
- Ground beef
- Ground sausage
- Cooked white rice
- Green bell pepper
- Yellow onion
- Tony Chachere's creole seasoning
- Lawry's seasoned salt
Steps to make the Dirty Rice:
In a large skillet, add ground beef and sausage. Add onion and bell pepper to the skillet. Add the creole seasoning and seasoned salt. Cook the meat until brown.
Once the meat is brown, remove it from the skillet, drain the excess oil, and reserve. Return the meat mixture to the skillet and add cooked rice. Return the oil to the pan and mix.
Mix well and add additional creole seasoning/seasoned salt if necessary. Enjoy!
