Add the celery, onion, garlic powder and

green pepper to the skillet. I cooked the

green pepper separately and added it to my

husbands dish later as I do not like green pepper.

  1. It was interesting to read this recipe. I fix many meals we call “one dish” because the entire meal, like this one, is a mixture on one dish. They all are very similar to your recipe: they have sauteed vegetables, meat, and rice. The variations are just the meat – anything left over and the spices depending on the meat or my mood. I might cook the rice in water or chicken broth or beef broth, again depending on my mood and the meat and spices. I am just as likely to add any vegetable I find in the drawer depending on the overall flavor I seek. I frequently use diced carrots as well. i have added beans or peas at times.

    • Isn’t it crazy how just a little variation can make an entirely different tasting meal? It took me years to realize this. I can’t believe how different rice can taste depending on what liquid you use to cook it in too. Enjoy your week!

  2. Oh my, this brings back memories from when I lived in Houston Texas and had easy access to Cajun food as well as would frequently visit New Orleans on business trips! I think I once tried to make dirty rice. Your recipe looks do-able!
