  2. Brown meat in pan along with diced onion, pepper, celery and garlic.
  3. Drain fat and season with cayenne pepper, onion and garlic salt.
  4. Add water and simmer for about 20- 30 minutes, until the vegetables are cooked down. (You may need to add a little water during the simmer time to keep from sticking.)

  6. Simmer for 15 minutes.
  7. Add cooked rice, stir gently, until all rice is moistened.

WAHOO! This was GREAT! Made it for the first time to take to a covered-dish Super Bowl party--it was a huge hit with both men and women. I didn't have a mirliton on hand, so I used a medium zucchini, chopped and parboiled, instead. Then I used the zucchini water to cook the rice. Everyone just gobbled it up. Thanks for sharing a terrific recipe!

This was really easy and fun to make. The whole family enjoyed it. I did not have any cream of mushroom soup so I sub a half of cup of lite sour cream. I will make this again.

This recipe was amazing. I followed it exactly with the exception of using cream of mushroom soup. I used condensed mushroom soup and a bit of soy milk. My whole family LOVED it!
