How I Almost Screwed Up an Easy Dinner

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

So, I keep a few things on hand for when the hubby and I aren't in the mood to cook - you know, quick and easy stuff.  One of my favorite things to keep on hand is pretty much anything made by Zatarain's.  This week I had their Dirty Rice on hand, but realized I had no meat.  When the hubby texted me tonight asking me if there was anything he could pick up at the store, I told him to pick up a Hillshire Smoked Sausage.  What was I thinking?  Dirty rice isn't made with smoked sausage, is it?  I guess it is if I make it, so here we go...

Starting out, we have the two main ingredients:


First, I sliced up the sausage fairly thin:


Next up, I fried quickly in a fry pan because I love when it gets crispy:


Mix up the Zatarain's according to the directions on the box, add your meat and bring to a boil:


Throw a lid on it, simmer for 25 minutes - and voila! My weird version of dirty rice...(it was actually pretty tasty)

Looks yummy! How did you almost screw it up?

It's my understanding that Dirty Rice should be done with crumbled ground beef or ground sausage (or a combo of both). Prolly should have saved the sausage for Red Beans & Rice. ;)
