    Hey all,here is a recipe for Dirty Rice I've been using and I really like it.You can use it as is,but I used all smoked meats which made it better.

    2 Tbs.all purpose flour
    2 Tbs.vegetable oil
    1 cup chopped onion
    1/2 cup chopped celery
    1/2 cup chopped green pepper
    2 cloves garlic,minced
    1/2 lb. lean ground beef
    1/2 lb.lean ground pork
    1/2 lb. smoked chicken,chopped
    1 ts. salt
    1/2 ts.fresh craked black pepper
    1/2 ts.caynne pepper[or to taste]
    1 cup chicken broth
    3 cups hot cooked rice
    1 cup chopped green onions

    1. In a Dutch oven or largh iron skillet,cook flour in oil over medium heat until deep red-brown,stirring constantly to prevent burning.
    2. Add onions,celery,bell pepper,and garlic,cook until vegetables are tender.
    3.Stir in remaining ingreadients;cook until meat is done,stirring often.

    This goes great with about anything you drag off the smoker.Anyone who has'nt tried dirty rice[as it is a SOUTHERN THING]should try this,it's wonderfull
     
  2. Now when I think of dirty rice I think of livers in it and I have to tell you that I hate liver!!!!! But as I read the ingrediants I saw no LIVER!!!! I'm making this one!

    Excellent post dacdots!! Our local market sells ground beef in the plastic tubes next to the pork sausage (also in a plastic tube like the Jimmy Dean Sausage) I'm thinking that the next time I do some fatties, I'll throw on a "beef fattie" too and use the sausage fattie in place of the ground pork in some Dirty Rice.

    Wynn your right,the original recipe called for chicken livers but I hate liver.I have tried to eat it many times as over the years a persons taste changes but this is one thing I don't think I'll ever be able to eat.Just put what meat in it that you like.David
