Do you know where the mix “Cajun Dirty Rice” originated?   Dirty rice is such a popular dish here in the south, and every family seems to have a similar recipe.  It is a traditional Cajun dish that is made from white rice cooked with your choice of something dark that gives it its “dirty” color.  The mix that we carry is so super simple and is a favorite of many.  This is an easy meal that many of us take camping, to the beach, to the lake, etc. because it feeds many, easy to make, requires few ingredients, and everyone loves it!

This mix is amazing and one of our favorites. Made it last week and used diced up pork chops; it was great.

The Cajun Dirty Rice is filling enough to be a meal. I used Jimmy Dean pork sausage (I think any will do, but this was easily available at our local grocery store), and while browning it used a fork to break it into crumbles. The pork sausage quickly becomes sausage patties if you don't watch it in the initial stages of browning it. I only let it get just barely brown, drained the grease (very little in this instance), then added the mix, beef broth, margarine, and water. It doesn't take long to come to a boil. I used a very deep skillet, and I think that a wok would probably work really well.
