Dirty (Cajun) Rice

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Pepina Rae

This is a recipe I developed by trying to duplicate a rice dish from a restaurant. It ended up being very simple and quick. It came very close to the original. Some folks even say it's better.

This is a great recipe! I like how it all came together. Even with all the seasonings I did find the rice a bit bland so next time I might cook the rice in the water with the bouillon powder and some more seasonings. Thank you so much for posting :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook rice.
  2. While rice is cooking, chop onions into 1/4" pieces separating the bottoms from the tops.
  3. Sauté the bottoms along with the loose sausage until cooked thoroughly, about 15-20 minutes.
  4. Then add 1/2 bouillon cube and 1/4 cup water and mix thoroughly. Turn off heat.
  5. Add onion tops and toss so that residual heat will take the bite out of the onions.
  6. Mix rice with meat mixture and serve.
  7. NOTE: The amount of onions are to taste, but do not use less than 2 bunches. The Cajun seasoning is also to taste. Do not add salt, as the bouillon and Cajun seasoning take care of the saltiness. Enjoy!
