Creole Dirty Rice

This dirty rice is the perfect accompaniment to the Delmonico's Crispy Pork Cheeks, but it's also delicious with roast or fried chicken.

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: About 3 cups, 4 servings


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
  • 1/4 pound ground pork
  • 1/4 pound chicken livers, pureed
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped jalapeno
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 2 cups cooked long grain white rice
  • 1/4 cup beef stock or canned, low-sodium beef broth
  • Dash of Tabasco, or other Louisiana hot sauce, or to taste


  • eIn a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat.

    When hot, add the butter, onions, and bell peppers and sauté the vegetables until tender and lightly caramelized, 4 to 6 minutes.

    Add the pork and cook, using the spoon to break the pork into small pieces, until it is well-browned, 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Add the liver purée, bay leaves, jalapeno, salt, coriander, cumin and cayenne and cook until the liver is cooked through and the spices are fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes.

    Add the rice and beef stock and continue to cook, stirring, until well-combined and the rice is heated through, 2 to 3 minutes longer. Adjust the seasoning if necessary and add hot sauce to taste
