“My current version of a classic recipe here is still a work in progress, but it's a pretty good one. This is a meal in itself, and tastes even better the next day when reheated.”

Original recipe yields 14 to 16 servings



  1. Prepare the rice in a large pot according to package directions.
  2. Cut the kielbasa into 1-inch chunks and quarter the chunks. Place in a large skillet over medium-high heat for about 5 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Season with cayenne pepper to taste. Transfer this to the pot with the rice, reserving the grease in the skillet.
  3. In the same skillet over medium-high heat, saute the ground beef for 5 minutes. Stir in the rice, and onion; reduce heat to medium and saute for 5 more minutes. Drain well and add to the pot. Stir the kidney beans, pinto beans, and pork and beans into the pot. Add a little water, if necessary, and simmer over low heat until ready to serve.

This looked interesting. I made a lot less though, only 2 cups of uncooked rice, half a kielbasa and I just eyed the amount of ground beef I wanted to use. I still used about 1/4 cup onion, about a teaspoon of garlic and LOTS of cajun seasoning, which had cayenne pepper and other spices in it. Salt & pepper to taste. I used 1 can each of black beans and kidney beans. It still made PLENTY. I did add about 1/4 water and a little 'juice' from the black beans since other reviewers said it was dry. I'm glad I did. It was tasty and I think it will taste even better as leftovers. This was easy to modify to my taste, don't be afraid to experiment.



Not too shabby, even with making changes. Okay, 6 cups of *uncooked* rice just seems over the top a bit. Not to mention you'd need one heck of a big pot. Scaled that back to 2, but reasonably would have been good with 2.5 or 3. Used one can each of kidney and pinto beans, skipped the Pk&B, added corn and cheese. Top it with a little sour cream and you've got a hearty meal. A dash of cumin helps too.



This receipe was tasty but too dry even after adding water to it. You can't add too much water as you will weaken the flavor. Had some left over for another meal so I added a can of beef gravy & 1/2 can of water and this is just what the doctor ordered.
