    Jostlori's Note:

    This is an easy-on-your-waistline recipe that still delivers on flavor. "Dirty rice is a classic Cajun dish made "dirty" by cooking the rice with minced livers or gizzards. This is a healthier version using brown rice and lean ground beef", says the author at skinnytaste.com.

      This recipe gets a big thumbs up. I typically have precooked brown rice in the freezer which made quick work of this recipe. The recipe was reduced to 2 wonderful servings using a country style sausage in place of the ground beef. The recipe was lacking a little with spice but was easily corrected with some Tabasco on the side. Made for ZWT9.

      I really liked this. I have only had Dirty Rice once before ( from a boxed mix )and hated it, so this was a nice surprise. Thanks for sharing, made for ZWT9

      This rice was simple and delicious. It was not overly spicy and was very filling even though it is a lighter version of a classic. I love that this dirty rice used brown rice, as I am always looking for a new way to get healthy grains into our diet. Thanks for such a great recipe Justlori. Made for ZWT9 for Team Tasty Testers.
