Dirty Rice is a spicy and flavorful Cajun rice dish made from white rice. It gets its “dirty” color from finely chopped chicken livers and ground beef or pork. The chicken livers give it such a deep flavor. Even if you think you don’t like chicken livers, you should try adding them. Since they are finely chopped, the overall dish doesn’t have much of a chicken liver flavor.
Dirty Rice is a spicy and meaty rice dish that just may become your favorite rice dish of all time.
Usually Dirty Rice is served as a side dish, but with all that meaty goodness added to it, it’s tempting to eat it as a main dish.
The flavor of Dirty Rice starts with the Holy Trinity- onion, celery, and bell pepper. Garlic, dried thyme, and a few teaspoons of Cajun seasoning round out the seasonings.
If you save your bacon grease when you cook bacon, use a little of it in this Dirty Rice. It will add even more flavor.
For the Cajun seasoning, I love to use Tony Chachere’s. It’s by far my favorite seasoning and it is perfect for sprinkling on all kinds of foods. I love it on potato salad. ?
