"I make this recipe for my husband for lunch. He loves the Cajun Style Sausage and Rice, however it plays havoc on his stomach at times but I found this recipe doesn't do that and he enjoys it almost as much. If you like cheese it also tastes very good with some sprinkled on the top after you remove it from the oven. "

  1. Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir in the ground beef. Cook and stir until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease. Add chopped onion to beef and cook and stir for 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the cooked rice, beans, tomatoes, and Cajun seasoning. Pour into a casserole dish.
  4. Cover and bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes until hot, stirring once.

this recipe is pretty good, although i did make some changes. i doubled the rice and water equivelent. in a different pan, i cooked the meat, then added the spices (1T old bay seasoning, 1/2 tsp...

Like the other reviewer, not saucy enough and the Cajun seasoning is too much. The heat is right but is too salty. My husband is suggesting only 1 tbsp of the Cajun seasoning and 1 tbsp of chili...

Using minute rice is fine for this recipe, but the cajun is a bit much. I give it 4 stars because it's a good base recipe, but would need more of a broth and less seasoning to make it smoother....

Very easy recipe and even the kids loved it. Used the Creole Seasoning recipe from this site.

Used Tony Cacheres in place of "Cajun seasoning" and it was WAY too spicy for the kids. I like the idea of cutting in 1/2 and adding chili powder - will try that next time. Not true red beans ...

This was a little disappointing since I had expected better. I made it exactly as written, using Penzeys "Very Hot" Cajun seasoning. The results were just kind of boring - it's kind of like it d...

It's pretty good but not really cajun... The cajun seasoning is very salty. So like most people said cutting it is a good idea. Old Bay Blackened seasoning adds a bit more "cajun" style taste to...
