Ann's Dirty Rice

"Quick and easy dinner. A family favorite. This was my mother's recipe. In my humble opinion she was the best cook ever. This recipe is very versatile and can be seasoned so many different ways. Please feel free to try your own favorite seasoning combinations. My two boys who are now 27 and 31 and my husband request this simple dinner frequently and I have taught the boys to make it but they say mine tastes different. I love to cook and they love to eat. This is such a simple recipe and I usually double so they have plenty to take home with them. It heats up well."

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir in the ground beef, onion, green and red peppers, beef bullion, salt, seasoned salt, and pepper. Cook and stir until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease. Stir in the water and rice. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.

This is a good base recipe, easy to work with and make the way you want. I added a can of red beans, some garlic powder, Adobo seasoning and a couple of dashes of cayenne. I also used brown rice...

My mom makes something like this as well. She started out making it in college since the base is rice so it is very cheap and you can make a lot to keep in the fridge for the week. Try switchin...

We really enjoyed this one skillet meal! It's a great versatile recipe! I only had 1/2 a red bell pepper, so I added chopped carrots and some frozen kernel corn to make up for it. I added spi...

If you like a tiny bit of bite, substitute diced Andouille sausage for ground beef. It becomes a medium-mild and inexpensive "poor man's jambalaya," missing the obvious seasonings, blackened chi...

Amazing! I added garlic + tomatoes.

This is a great recipe that my mother used to make also. It was one of those family favorites and a staple in our home. The only difference was that she didn't put in the bell peppers but did ...

This was okay, but unexciting. Paula Dean's is much better. She uses bulk pork sausage and chicken livers with parsley and celery. I recommend Paula's, it's much tastier. Mmmmm . . .

Great recipe!!! What a quick, easy and budget friendly dish! I didn't have any green or red peppers so I used a can of drained zesty jalapeƱo diced tomatoes and added water to the liquid to me...

I made this recipe for the first time tonight with excellent results. The changes I made were to use ground turkey breast instead of beef and I also added ketchup for a finishing touch that mad...
