I have got a craving for Dirty Rice. I'll have to wait until after
Thanksgiving when I will have the gizzard, liver, neck, etc.
Not my recipe, credit at bottom

DIRTY RICE

This was transcribed verbatim from a hand-written recipe by my late
great-aunt Nettie Zeringue (of da Nint' Ward, and then Da Parish),
with a few annotations.
She passed this on to me when I first moved to California, and it came
in handy when I had to fend for myself to get Louisiana food. Thanks,
Aunt Nettie!

4 teaspoons Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning (what Aunt Nettie used);
OR
3 teaspoons Creole seasoning blend, plus
1 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter
2 cups converted rice
1 cup celery, chopped
2 cups onions, chopped
1 cup bell pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons garlic, minced
4 tablespoons parsley, chopped
1 quart water
Chicken livers, gizzards, necks, wings, backs
"If you bought a whole chicken, season and broil the breasts, legs and
thighs to serve as an entree with the rice. If you're making this as a
side dish for something else, then ...
"Put the gizzards, livers, wings, necks, backs, etc., in the water,
bring to a boil and simmer for about 30 minutes. (Skim off any scum
that rises to the surface.) Let cool and remove the meat from the
bones. Finely mince the meat and giblets, then return to the water;
set aside for the moment.

"Melt the butter in a heavy pot, then add rice and fry until brown.
Add onions, garlic, celery, bell pepper and parsley, and fry until
transparent.

"Heat the chicken and broth again, and add to the rice. The water
should be about one inch above the rice; if needed add extra water.

"Add seasoning, bring to a boil and cook until the water has almost
evaporated and is just bubbling on top of the rice. Stir to prevent
sticking. Cover and cook over low heat for about 25 minutes. Remove
from heat and let rice set for about 10 minutes. When ready to serve,
stir rice well.

"Very tasty," said Aunt Nettie.

She added, "If you would like to make jambalaya, you can use this
dirty rice recipe except for the giblets. I put whatever I want,
sometimes shrimp, smoked sausage, ham, or whatever. The shrimp
jambalaya is the best."

I had some kind of platter from 7-Eleven for breakfast. It's some stuff on top of some rice.

Knowing you Hawai'ians? Its probably loco moco, right? Two hamburger patties, a fried egg and rice covered by onions, mushrooms and beef gravy?

It was not a loco moco although that's a good guess. It was scrambled eggs on top of rice with potatoes, sausage, and ham. It was a little strange.

Rice with potatoes??? Not something I have ever heard of!

How do you do that?

it's not something that I would cook up but I'd sure eat it again. My understanding is that these local scramble bowls are pretty popular. You can even get a deluxe version with different sausage and furikake - just top with ketchup and Sriracha. Holy smokes, that's good! The weird part is you can't get it at any restaurant - just 7-Elevens.

It has regular American style pork sausage and Japanese Arabiki pork sausage plus ham. It's a porky bento box. Maybe it's too much pork.

I can't vouch for Hawaii, but 7-11's in Asia are actually very
popular food destinations - much moreso than any Sheetz or Wawa.

bones. Finely mince the meat and giblets, then return to the water;
set aside for the moment.
"Melt the butter in a heavy pot, then add rice and fry until brown.
Add onions, garlic, celery, bell pepper and parsley, and fry until
transparent.
"Heat the chicken and broth again, and add to the rice. The water
should be about one inch above the rice; if needed add extra water.
"Add seasoning, bring to a boil and cook until the water has almost
evaporated and is just bubbling on top of the rice. Stir to prevent
sticking. Cover and cook over low heat for about 25 minutes. Remove
from heat and let rice set for about 10 minutes. When ready to serve,
stir rice well.
"Very tasty," said Aunt Nettie.
She added, "If you would like to make jambalaya, you can use this
dirty rice recipe except for the giblets. I put whatever I want,
sometimes shrimp, smoked sausage, ham, or whatever. The shrimp
jambalaya is the best."

I've only had 'Dirty Rice' once and it was served by a co-worker back
around 1985 at a company "holiday" pot luck. Yes, it was after
Thanksgiving and the gizzards, etc. were saved. She and her husband
hailed from Houma, Louisiana. I absolutely *loved* the Dirty Rice she
brought (she kept it warm in a crock pot). She gave me the recipe and I
gave it a try. Sadly, it did not turn out tasting at all like hers. I
hope you have better luck with the Gumbo Pages/Aunt Nettie/Chuck Taggert
recipe!

I have got a craving for Dirty Rice. I'll have to wait until after
Thanksgiving when I will have the gizzard, liver, neck, etc.
Not my recipe, credit at bottom
DIRTY RICE
This was transcribed verbatim from a hand-written recipe by my late
great-aunt Nettie Zeringue (of da Nint' Ward, and then Da Parish),
with a few annotations.
She passed this on to me when I first moved to California, and it came
in handy when I had to fend for myself to get Louisiana food. Thanks,
Aunt Nettie!
4 teaspoons Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning (what Aunt Nettie used);
OR
3 teaspoons Creole seasoning blend, plus
1 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter
2 cups converted rice
1 cup celery, chopped
2 cups onions, chopped
1 cup bell pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons garlic, minced
4 tablespoons parsley, chopped
1 quart water
Chicken livers, gizzards, necks, wings, backs
"If you bought a whole chicken, season and broil the breasts, legs and
thighs to serve as an entree with the rice. If you're making this as a
side dish for something else, then ...
"Put the gizzards, livers, wings, necks, backs, etc., in the water,
bring to a boil and simmer for about 30 minutes. (Skim off any scum
that rises to the surface.) Let cool and remove the meat from the
bones. Finely mince the meat and giblets, then return to the water;
set aside for the moment.
"Melt the butter in a heavy pot, then add rice and fry until brown.
Add onions, garlic, celery, bell pepper and parsley, and fry until
transparent.

I first had dirty rice at Popeye's years ago. At that time you got
really nice portions or dirty rice and their beans Sadly, Popeye's is
way on the other side of town now and the portions of the sides are
small and outrageously priced.
So I'm going to have to do this myself

You could try buying a new crock pot. I've made it a few times, and
there is no magic. You can even use a regular pan. There's no magic
