What you guy's call "Dirty Rice" we cajuns call Rice Dressing. Here's one of my favorites.
Terry's Rice Dressing 7 pounds ground pork 1 pound ground meat 1/2 large jar of Savoie's Roux 1 large package frozen chopped bell pepper 1 1/2 large package frozen chopped onions 1/2 cup each onion tops and parsley (or more) Salt to taste Red Pepper to taste Water
In a separate pot, cook 1/2 cup of rice per person. The cook's choice on this dish is medium grain rice. In a large cast iron pot or large dutch oven, cook the meat until brown. (Allow 1 pound of meat for 2 people). Add the roux, bell pepper and onions. Mix well. Add enough water to form a stewy mixture. Cover the pot and cook over medium heat for one and one-half hours. Stir to prevent sticking. You may need to add more water as the mixture cooks down. Cook for 1/2 hour more uncovered.
Add the parsley and onion tops; then add the rice to the meat mixture to form the dressing. Serve with cole slaw,petit pois peas and a slice of french bread. This is as traditional as a Cajun meal can be. www.realcajunrecipes.com/recipes/565.rcr[/url]
