Jane’s Shrimp Rice Dressing – Dirty Rice

You could leave off the shrimp and it would still be great.


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 3 lbs shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 large onion and bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 cup each green onions and parsley
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp roux (yours or pre-made)
  • 1 tsp Kitchen Bouquet (to darken)
  • 4-6 cups cooked rice
  • 4 tsp Season-All Seasoning or Cajun Seasoning
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 cup water


Step 1

The prep time includes peeling the shrimp.

Step 2

In a large roaster or heavy duty pot, add oil and brown the beef and pork. Drain any excess oil and meat fat. Add the Cajun Trinity (onion, bell pepper, and celery), garlic powder, roux and Kitchen Bouquet. Blend the mixture together along with one cup of cold water.

Step 3

Bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Note: if water goes down, add more water to keep the mixture in a watery gravy-like stew consistency. Add the shrimp, parsley, and green onions. Cook for three minutes, take off heat and cover pot. Let the heat of the mixture finish cooking the shrimp.

Step 4

Add the cooked rice to the mixture. All done. Serve with any of your favorites. Add a green salad and you have a meal by itself.
