    FolkDiva's Note:

    My early years were split between rural east Texas and the heart of Louisiana's Cajun Country....back in my elementary days (before school lunches came frozen in boxes) this was a lunch room staple in Lafayette, Louisiana.....prepared daily by the mother's of my Cajun friends who worked part time in the school cafeteria. To this day a big helping of hot Dirty Rice takes me back to 4th grade! This recipe, from Chef Patrick Mould, calls for ground pork and beef only; which works well for me because, if I'm the one doing the cooking, I simply can not deal with chicken livers! This makes a LOT of Dirty if your not cooking for a lunch room full of hungry kids, you may want to 1/2 or even 1/4 the recipe. For the 'dark roux' I recommend you reference Gumbo Base (Aka Roux) by chef #15851

      Yes, Ma'am! This recipe is so awesome. My mom never made a roux with her rice, but let me tell you that it is a much welcomed addition. My DH was trying to see if he could eat the whole pot by himself. I subbed ground venison & so. style venison sausage. Delicious!

      I made this for a potluck party and unfortunately had to make this recipe in a more speedy fashion than the directions dictated...but all's well! I had made the white rice the night before so on the night I put it together I browned the ground beef in a skillet and about halfway through cooking tossed in the veggies, garlic and roux. Let it finish cooking off, then tossed in all the seasonings and the water with boullion granules and had it on an agressive simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring often. Then, tossed with the rice and reheated the next day in a crockpot. Perfect- delish and couldn't ask for better. The smell in our house was DEVINE.

      Clear and simple--this is ***THE*** dirty rice recipe. Reduced it by a 1/4th--and was pretty much winging it with regard to portions. I used pork sausage only and anahiem peppers instead of regular green. This was great--perfect, no less. Will never look for another dirty rice recipe. THIS IS IT!
