Attention Family! I've been saying it for years, now I am preparing you for when it happens, I am retiring from cooking in less than 5 years. The only thing I will make is my morning coffee, and that is only because I am too lazy to get dressed and go out for it!

Dirty Rice

This rice dish is quick and easy, oh that sounds familiar! Serve it with slices of lime, or sliced cucumbers in vinegar. If you are comfortable in the kitchen, this only takes about 30 minutes to get it on the table.

Dirty Rice

2 cups raw rice
1/2 to 1 pound of ground pork
1 bell pepper
1 onion
2 stalks celery
2 carrots
2 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons Chef Wayne's seasoning or Bayou Blast
1 tablespoon oregano
1 1/2 cups chicken broth

Put the rice on to cook in 4 cups of water. Then, in a large frying pan, brown the pork. While the pork is browning, wash, peel, scrape and chop the veggies. Drain the pork, return it to the pan, and add all the veggies; onion, pepper, celery, carrot, and garlic. Add the seasonings. Cook over medium heat, letting it brown up a bit. Add some of the broth if it sticks. When the rice is done (it will take about 20 minutes), add it to the pork and veggies, along with the broth. Stir it all together until well-mixed and hot. Pass the hot sauce to your brother.
