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 chili powder), beans and onion and let that simmer for a few minutes. then i added the rice (which should be just-under cooked) to the pan along with 1/2C chicken broth and the tomatoes and let the whole dish simmer together for about 20 minutes. it turned out amazing!

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 powder to keep the heat but lessen the salt. I also wanted some veggies in it so will also try adding a diced green pepper.


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. But good nonetheless!
