A Cajun-style dirty rice recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 pound chicken gizzards
  • 3 1/2 cups hot chicken broth or beef broth
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons bacon drippings
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/2 pound ground lean pork
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions with tops
  • 2 medium cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or a few dashes Tabasco sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups long-grain rice
  • 1/2 pound chicken livers, finely diced

Preparation:

Simmer gizzards in the chicken or beef broth for 20 to 30 minutes. Remove gizzards with a slotted spoon; grind or mince. Reserve broth. Heat bacon drippings and 2 tablespoons of the butter in a heavy casserole. Sauté the pork and gizzards over high heat until pork is no longer pink. Lower heat; add vegetables and seasonings and cook until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Add rice and reserved broth; bring rapidly to a boil, stir once, cover, and lower heat. Simmer for 15 minutes, until rice is tender.
Sauté minced chicken livers in remaining butter for 3 minutes. Toss with the rice, taste for seasoning, and add salt and pepper if necessary. Cover and let rice fluff in a 225° oven for 10 minutes .
Serves 4 to 6.

Superb, Member horsemolasses

I was lazy today and didn't want to get out my cookbook so I came on the net to get the recipe. This is the one! I am also from Louisiana and this recipe tastes like Dirty Rice should taste. Use it in place of dressing or even as the main course.
