ISO Dirty Rice recipe

I just thought of making the rice off hand, but, I don't have chicken livers. Can I make it without them? I have everything else, I think, from looking at different recipes. TIA

That sort of gray-ish look from the chicken livers is what makes it "dirty". But you should still get a great rice dish without them, it just won't look "dirty". I recommend cooking the rice in a poultry stock rather than water to get extra flavor.

Dirty Rice

2 tsp Cayenne
1 1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
11/4 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Dry Mustard
1 tsp Ground Cumin
1/2 tsp Dry Thyme
1/2 tsp Dry Oregano

Main Dish:
2 Tb Vegetable Oil
1/2 Lb Chicken Gizzards, ground
1/4 Lb Ground Pork
2 Bay Leaves
1/2 C Onion, minced
1/2 C Celery, minced
1/2 C Green Bell Pepper, minced
2 tsp Garlic, minced
2 Tb Butter
2 C Chicken Stock
1/3 Lb Chicken Livers, ground
3/4 C Converted Rice

Combine the seasoning ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.

Heat a 5.5-quart, covered sauté pan over high heat and add the oil, gizzards, pork and bay leaves. Cook, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly browned – about 6 minutes.

Stir in the seasoning mix, onions, celery, green pepper and garlic. Stir thoroughly and scrape the pan bottom well.

Add the butter and stir until melted. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for about 8 minutes, stirring frequently. Keep scraping the bottom.

Add the stock and scrape the pan bottom clean. Cook for 8 minutes over high heat stirring once.

Stir in the chicken livers and cook for two minutes.

Stir in the rice and cover the pan. Cook over low heat for 5 minutes.

Remove from the heat and rest, covered for 10 minutes.

Remove the bay leaves and serve immediately.
