Dirty Rice

By Veronica46

My take on this popular Cajun recipe calls for both ground beef and pork to give this rice dish its characteristic “dirty” look.


I am not sure if I mentioned it, but I am not a fan of liver. For me it is a texture thing.

Nope I will not go anywhere near liver or gizzards either.

When I cook a whole chicken, I remove the liver, gizzard  and neck from the inside of the the bird. I keep the neck and use it to make stock, but the liver and gizzards I boil and give to the dog.

Maybe that is why I never really liked dirty rice.

If cooked the “authentic” Cajun way you are going to need livers and gizzards.

No thank you.

I can make it look dirty with some ground beef and pork. This way it is delicious without that weird tasting liver.

I know that it is not authentic, but I think I am with a lot of other people who are not a fan of liver or gizzards.

I am not really trying to hate on the liver and gizzards, it is just not for me. I do love rice and thought I would give dirty rice a chance in my kitchen. Of course minus the liver and gizzards because that is how I roll.
