Cajun Beef & Rice
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
Looked good, easy & fast to make but way too bland, no flavor, even when adding more spices .... normally I can figure out how to make a recipe better but couldn't come up with anything for this ..... I didn't like it, hubby & kids didn't like it .... won't make this again .... just yuck !!
It's a good weeknight recipe. Some people compared to Dirty Rice, but I don't think this one is supposed to be Dirty Rice, people don't even read the title correctly. It has a Cajun flair, though.
Wanted a quick cajun dinner and tried this one. As I am living by myself, I cut the recipe by 50%. I substituted beef broth for the water and bullion cubes made with beef base for the water. I served it, and put the dish back in the pan and added an 8 oz can of tomato sauce and a half of cup of frozen corn. With those modifications it was ok. Don't know if I will ever make it again.
I was looking for a new recipe for beef and craving Cajun and this was the perfect recipe for just that. I added some tomato’s I also used beef broth instead of water and skipped the beef bouillon cubes I also added 4 different types of Cajun seasons in the amount of two tablespoons and Added some garlic And for the instant rice I used Zatarans jambalaya!! Made some garlic cheese bread to go with it and it was delicious, I know I didn’t follow the recipe exactly but as a home chef you improvise to your taste and what you have on hand! Good base to follow though
This is one of our favorites for a quick, satisfying and yummy meal.

My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. Next time I make it I'll add extra spice because enjoy more highly seasoned dishes. Incidentally, I noticed a reviewer wrote that this recipe isn't Cajun dirty rice. Well, dirty isn't in the recipe's title.
We’ve made this several times, including using cauliflower “rice.” It’s one of my husband’s favorites.
It’s close, but not Cajun dirty rice. Real Cajun dirty rice has ground up or finely chopped chicken gizzards, and sone also use livers, plus we would never use instant rice. The rice needs to cook with the ingredients so it’ gets the flavor.
