This recipe was wonderful with one note. It is intended to be made and consumed immediately. In other words, don't try to make it in advance and reheat or hold it. Instead, cook it just before you intend to serve it, and then serve it hot and direct from the oven.
Southern Red Rice with Shrimp
Crawfish Rice Dressing - The recipe says to put the rice in the pan uncooked and it should cook for 1 hr in the oven with the other ingredients. Well of course I didn't have time for that so I cooked the rice separate while I heated up the other ingredients in a skillet. (I also haven't had good luck with putting dry rice in recipes and getting it to cook all the way). So then I mixed every thing together and then baked covered for about 25 min. Will definitely make again!
Authentic dirty rice usually contains gizzards & livers, or some other form of giblets, but don't fret if you don't like them. You can simply increase the beef or pork and still have a wonderful meal. Take it easy on the Cajun seasoning though - add a little, taste and adjust!
