    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!

    This was great! I made a dirty rice recipe a few months back with chicken livers and gizzards that seemed to take forever to make. It was wonderful-- if you like gizzards and liver, which my husband does not. I made this tonight as a concession to him, and I'm really glad I did. I did cut the celery back to 2 stalks, the ground beef to a pound, and I had to use dried minced onion rather than fresh. This was a little wetter than the other recipe I made, but not in a bad way... it was almost creamy. We added extra tabasco to our bowls. I didn't use the mirliton, and in place of onion and garlic salts, I used powders and added a half a teaspoon of salt. Cooked the rice in beef broth cause we like it that way. I will definitely make this one again. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.

    Very tasty! I used a little less of the veggie so my children wouldn't complain so much, but i htink I would have LOVED the zucchini in it as well. I did add a touch of garlic and a generous splaash of milk along with the soup as it was very, very thick and didn't want to incorprate with the rice too much. I also only used 3 cups of rice and still had a TON of food. I can imagine this being a highlight at a pot luck dinner. As always a perfectly wonderful PanNan recipe!
