Rump Shaking Good Dirty Rice Recipe

Print Friendly and PDF
Dirty rice is a traditional Creole dish made from white rice which gets a "dirty" color from being cooked with small pieces of chicken liver or giblets, green bell pepper, celery, and onion, and spiced with cayenne and black pepper. Parsley and/or chopped green onions are common garnishes. Dirty rice is most common in the Creole regions of southern Louisiana; however, it can also be found in other areas of the American South. In some southern regions, it is also called rice dressing.  

To me it’s just about one of the most satisfying one bowl meals of comfort food EVER!  It’s also a great side dish to bring to a BBQ!  This is Rump Shaking Good stuff!

2 cups enriched rice
1 tablespoon butter
4 cups chicken stock
4 cloves minced garlic
1 1/2 cups diced yellow onion
1 cup diced red bell pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Salt and pepper
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning (Slap Ya Mama)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground sage
4 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
3 Tablespoons sugar
1/4 pound pork sausage meat
1/4 pound ground beef
1/2 pound chicken livers (cut into small pieces)

1/4 cup Whiskey
1 bunch green onions, (minced)

1/2 cup Sun dried tomatoes 
1/2 cup fresh chopped parsley (chopped)
1 cup of water


In colander, rinse rice several times until water runs clear. Place rice in pot and add butter and chicken stock. Bring to a boil then cover and simmer for 20 minutes.  Cook sausage, ground beef and chicken livers together garlic, onions and bell peppers in sauté pan until they start to brown up nicely, add the Cajun seasoning, whiskey, sun dried tomatoes, salt, pepper, herbs and cayenne pepper. Then add the cooked rice. Add the cup of water, apple cider vinegar and sugar. Mix rice well, cover the pot and let simmer on lowest heat for an additional 20 minutes, stirring continuously, until flavors meld.  Toss in the parsley and the minced green onion before serving. ENJOY!
