Rice dressing, or dirty rice as it is also called, is a great side dish. It is perfect with beef, chicken or pork dishes. For holidays in my family, it is a staple, it is always there. A holiday just isn't a holiday without it.
Some companies produce box mixes of dirty rice. However, this is so easy to make, you don't need the box anymore.
2 cups cooked rice
1 lb of ground beef
1 container of frozen rice dressing mix (I used Savoie's, but there are several other kinds out there)
1 stalk of celery, chopped
In a pot, season the ground beef with salt, cayenne and celery. Brown the ground beef and add the frozen rice dressing mix. Let the mix cook thoroughly, consistently stirring the ingredients together.
Once the mix and beef are cooked, turn the fire off under the pot. Add the rice to the mix, a little at a time. Stir to incorporate the mix and the rice completely.
