Out of everything my dad made growing up, Zatarain’s dirty rice mix was my favorite!
Clearly unhealthy by it being processed. And consisting mainly of rice and meat. But I loved eating it!
Today, I was looking at what I had on the shelves and found a box of the dirty rice. So, I decided to cook it.
First, I browned some ground beef, but I added some green onion to give it some freshness.
After browning the ground beef, I drained the excess fat oil. Don’t worry. I did not dispose the oil down the sink (that would cause problems).
After draining the fat oil, I tossed in bell peppers to give it something light.
Then I added water, the mixture bag from the box, and some vegetable oil.
Following the directions of the box, I covered the pot and turned the heat down.
Left the pot alone for 25 minutes while occasionally stirring it.
After the 25 minutes, I turned off the heat and left the rice alone for 5 minutes.
Finally, I ate it and it was so yummy!
