Fantastic! Didn't have any shrimp on hand so I just used beef sausage, left the celery out, but added broccoli. The flavor was phenomenal. Just enough of a 'kick' to make it really exciting, but not so spicy that we couldn't feed it to the kids. AMAZING recipe. I'll be making this again and again. Ty for posting.

What sushi is on a Japanese table is what dirty rice is to the Cajun table. Used up some leftover ground pork and didn't have any shrimp, but still good enough for our Cajun Riviera.

My husband really liked this but I felt like something was missing. Also, my rice was not fully cooked after the 15 minutes. By the time the dish was done, it was still a little bit crunchy. Will increase cook time to 20 minutes on rice. Also, I left out the green pepper because we don't like cooked green pepper.

I cooked this recipe in a rice cooker with everything but the meat and it came out great. Served along side some baked salmon. Will definitely try this one again with the proper meats! Thanks!

We loved this. I didn't have bell pepper or celery on hand, so we threw in carrots and broccoli instead, and it worked out great. We also used chicken sausage instead of ground pork, since that's what we had in our fridge. Yum!

Delicious. I discovered I only had a red bell pepper instead of green, but I was pleased that it made the recipe more colorful, and still tasted great. I'll think I'll do that again in the future. Thanks for posting this winner.

Very good! My daughter and I both liked this a lot. The husband was more luke-warm about it because he doesn't care for shrimp (unless it's disguised in a thick layer of batter and deep-fried!)I didn't change a thing (except I added less shrimp for the reason stated previously...) and it turned out perfectly.

Taste wise, this was really good. However, I had to cook my rice for well over an hour before it was fully cooked.

Excellent recipe! Very flavorful with the spices used, although I did increase to our liking. I did omit the pork (vegetarian) and just used the shrimp. Great served with homemade cornbread. Thanks for posting!

That was Really good! I doubled just about everything, except spices. However, I added 1 TBS of Chicken Seasoning, and 1/2 TBS Old Bay. For the chicken stock, I used 2 chicken bullion cubes and 1 beef bullion cube. Also, I precooked the rice, so there was some juice in the final product. Great 1 pot meal!
