Dirty Rice

I'm a big fan of cajun cuisine and one of my favorite side staples is dirty rice. This was my first attempt at ever making it, so I will probably update this recipe as I continue to improve upon it. I had some ground elk meat leftover from my brother's last hunt, so I substituted that for the ground beef! As for now, it's a great, simple and quick way of getting that comforting bite of dirty rice. I would love to hear from you guys if you have more authentic recipes, so please leave it in the comments below or reach out to me if you do!

Dirty Rice served alongside a blackened chicken breast and a side of my "Bill Miller's *Copycat* Green Beans"

 

DIRTY RICE

  • 1 1/2 cups white rice, uncooked

  • 3 1/2 cups beef broth

INSTRUCTIONS:
