An easier knockoff recipe for Dirty Rice. Just as good! I advise not to substitute regular rice for the converted; it doesn't come out as pretty...and no Cajun I ever knew uses brown rice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large saucepan, saute bacon over medium heat until slightly crisp (about 10 minutes). Remove bacon from pan, place on paper towels. Drain off fat.
  2. Add to the saucepan, ground beef; saute over medium heat, breaking beef up into small pieces. Stir in onion, bell peppers, celery and garlic, sauteing until beef is no longer pink (3-5 minutes). Stir in cumin, salt, oregano, black and cayenne peppers; cook 1 minute.
  3. Stir in rice; cook 2 minutes. Stir in broth and bring to a boil; reduce heat, simmer, covered, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed (25-30 minutes), stirring occasionally. Stir in parsley and bacon. Serve immediately.
