What's good , everybody .
Welcome back to my channel , smoking and grilling with me A B .
But today you didn't already seen that thumbnail .
You didn't look at that picture , your mouth , got the watering .
You clicked on that button and now you're here today .
I'm getting ready to show you guys just how easy it is to make .
You know what ?
We're just gonna make a dirty rice .
Keep it real simple .
Hey , and saying that let's just go over these ingredients right now .
Let's make it happen .
All right .
So look , we're gonna start off .
Look , I got some long grain rice , right ?
This is what you're gonna need that .
And this right here .
This is my Creole seasoning .
You know what ?
And if you've been watching me for a minute , you know , I rave about this creole kit .
This is a must have folks .
I use it in everything .
You can use Creole Cajun or whatever .
But this right here is my weapon of choice today .
All right , we got guarded clothes , big leaves and then let's talk about your sausage right here .
You can see right here .
It says Italian sausage , right ?
It's up to you what you guys , you know what you guys wanna use for me .
This is what I'm using today or you can take an sausage , you can cut them out , you know , and like you get all of the sauces out of the uh out of the and then , you know , go ahead and fry it from there .
Now , here we go .
Now we talking about dirty rice .
So we're talking Creole slash Cajun , right ?
So you know what , I'm gonna go ahead and just put this right here and let you guys tell me what you think about that right here .
This is a must have when you're doing , you know , if you ask me if you're doing anything Cajun and Creole .
Now you see celery , green red bell pepper and then we're gonna use that yellow onion because we want something sweet , right ?
I always got my salt and pepper .
I use cautious salt .
I like to , you know , grind my pepper .
I got parsley here for some uh for some garnish and then I got my infused olive oil right here .
This right here is just garlic infused .
I'll be using that today .
Now over here , look , we got chicken broth .
You're gonna need some of this .
I'm gonna show you how to put all this together .
Hey , look , it's enough talking .
Oh And before I forget because I love to say uh yeah , w sauce .
This is it right here .
Let's make it happen .
So you you see what I'm making money and I'm using my cast iron skillet , right ?
This is the 12 inch cast iron skillet with the lid .
This is not the , the lid that came with it .
You know what I mean ?
This is one of those uh lids for another pan that I have .
But this is what I'm gonna be using today , right ?
So this is already coming up to heat .
I'm gonna go ahead and open up , you know , my sausage and what we wanna do is we wanna brown this until we don't see any pink , right ?
So I'm gonna go ahead and just give it a little start with just a little bit of my olive oil , right ?
So now I'm gonna go ahead and just add my sausage peel this off .
Now , look , I'm not gonna touch it and don't forget this is in , in the duction top , right ?
So the heating element is right here in the center .
I want this to like crust over .
So I'm not gonna beat it , break it up or nothing like that .
We're gonna let it form a crust .
Then I'm gonna flip it over .
I'm gonna let it form a crust on the other side and then I'm gonna break it up .
So now that we got the , you know , our sausage in the pan , let's go ahead and let's just start , you know , prepping our bell peppers , right ?
So now I'm gonna flip it , you could look at that crust right there .
That's what we wanna see .
You see that , that's that flavor folks .
Right here .
I'm gonna go ahead and kick back and let you guys look at the little knife work and give you a little bit of that eye candy .
So we got crush on the bottom side .
Now , what we'll do is we'll just go ahead and break it all up .
Well , we want , we don't want to see any pink .
Now , I'm gonna turn this down to a medium which is about 275 degrees .
You just wanna break this up and get it nice and small .
So as you can see , I got it all chopped down and I'm gonna tell you , you know , I'm big on having the right tool for the job , right .
I like these wooden spoons and see how it square makes it super easy for me to get right down there .
And you know what , when you're breaking up ground beef or turkey or whatever you're doing turkey sauces , whatever .
Look , it helps you this right here just makes your job much , much easier .
Now that we got , you know , everything , you know , all of our , our veggies look , they chop the way I like them or dice .
Some of these are fine .
Some are like regular dice .
Now , what I wanna do is look , my , I got my skillet is back up to temp , right ?
I just wanna show you this right here when your skillet is seasoned , right ?
You don't get none of that .
Stick it right .
But if you use ground beef , maybe that had stuck down on the bottom .
So what you wanna do is you wanna take your w sauce , right ?
You gonna add this right ?
And we're gonna use this to de glaze it .
But for me , I don't have that issue .
So I'm gonna go ahead and turn it down to like a medium heat .
You know , look and you , you see , I had nothing to stick on the bottom but anything to stick on the bottom right there .
That's your flavor .
You just wanna make sure you get it all .
Also , I wanna cover this .
If you went ahead and used ground beef , you might , it depends on the percentage of fat .
You might have a lot of fat in here .
What you wanna do is drain some of that fat and leave yourself about three tablespoons of fat in the bottom , right ?
So now I'm gonna go ahead and start adding my veggies .
No particular order , right ?
Onions and the green bell peppers .
Now you just wanna go ahead and get everything coated with all of the goodness , all of the , the oil and everything that's in here .
You know what I mean ?
We wanna get that to marinade and the soften and saute some of these onions down , some of these veggies down .
Now we're gonna give this a little bit of a head start before I go ahead and add that garlic , right ?
Because you know , garlic can be a little tricky but check it .
Yeah , I get to use my press , right .
So go ahead if you got a press , whatever , whatever it is , you know what I mean ?
I just suggest everybody get one of these to look and make your life a whole lot easier .
Check this out y'all .
You just squeeze it and guess what ?
We got Mince Garland .
Now we got it .
We're just gonna go ahead and give it a good stir .
Look , the steam from the , you know , from the pan , the veggies are starting to release is , it's goodness .
And it's starting to soften up .
What we wanna do is , and again , look , I don't know if I said it already , but I'm under a medium heat .
You know what I mean ?
I might turn it up a little bit .
Remember , medium , 275 degrees .
I'm gonna go ahead and raise it up just a little bit to 300 degrees .
Because we wanna cook some of these veggies down just a little bit more and we don't wanna burn that uh that the garlic , right ?
All I can tell you is if you had this going on in your kitchen right now , everybody that comes in to your home will just say , oh my goodness .
What is that you cooking ?
So look like I said in the beginning , I made one of these before made a video and I put shrimp in it and everybody was like , man , that's more like a , a jumbo .
But check it out .
You guys can put whatever you want to put in here .
It doesn't really matter .
It's your dirty rice , you know what I mean ?
But this right here is just like fire and for those that never ever had it , this is a great start .
Where is the creole seasoning ?
Oh When do we put that in with the rice ?
Got it .
It makes sense .
Now you wanna go ahead and get yourself a couple of pinches , right ?
And then check it out .
We gotta go with that salt .
I mean , excuse me , that pepper right now , for me , you guys know you've been following this channel .
You know , I like to use a lot of pepper .
Now look , my veggies is starting to soften up .
I can touch them and feel them the way they feel , you know , with using my wooden spoon .
And you know what ?
Even if you don't do that , you can look at them , see how it loses some of the red and the green is starting to , you know , fade away and the onions look everything .
When they start to soften up , they start becoming translucent and they lose a lot of that color .
This right here tells me is right now what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna go ahead and I'm gonna introduce my long green rice , right ?
So we just add that .
And what we wanna do is we wanna brown this for about two minutes .
Now , after I get just stirred up , right .
I'm gonna go ahead and just set a timer .
Hey , you know what it doesn't , I like mine to be a certain color .
So I'm gonna go ahead and just brown it for about , I'm gonna say three minutes .
So we got the rice in the skillet .
We browning that up , right ?
Oh And I should have said this too .
I went ahead and raised my fire back up to a medium high because we wanna put a little bit of color on that rice , right ?
So we're gonna go ahead and I'm gonna measure this out .
This is a four cup Pyrex cup , right ?
Measuring cup .
So , and actually this right here holds uh I think this carton holds six .
So what I'm gonna do is I just wanna get four .
We're gonna come back and make one .
So my timer just went off .
Now , I'm gonna go ahead and add now we got five cups and I'm gonna go ahead and give it a stir .
And then what we wanna do is bring this back to a boil .
Then we're gonna lower the temperature down to get us a simmer and then we're gonna set a timer for about 25 minutes and we're gonna look and see how that is .
Now , remember I had a top once I get everything up and I set it down to a simmer , I'm gonna go ahead and put that top on there .
Now , this is when you introduce , you know , your Creole kick or your Cajun seasoning .
If you've been following me for a minute , you know , I'm gonna use that , that Creole kick at all times .
Then you wanna go ahead and add your bay leaf .
Give it a stir , then you wanna go ahead and cook it to all your liquid is gone .
Timer went off .
Let's take a look at it .
Oh Yeah , that's another .
They wanted the tell tale sign .
You see all the liquid is going now you just wanna take it .
Look , I notice what I'm doing .
I'm taking it square uh wooden spoon , right ?
Take it , hit the bottom and I wanna push it through when I put it right there .
Nothing is starving it on the bottom , right ?
It's just getting a little thick .
This right here folks is dirty rice .
Hey , I'm gonna go ahead and just give it a stir .
Let me take this heat off .
Oh Yeah , I just wanna stir it .
Let some of the steam , you know , get out .
We don't want it to be mushy , right ?
So we're gonna leave it like this .
Uh You guys tell me , hey , all that box , dirty rice and all of that you can make this , you know , really , really fast .
Tell me what you think down in the comment section below .
I'm gonna let it steam .
I'm gonna give it about five minutes .
We're gonna put some of this on a plate or a bowl .
I don't know yet .
And we eat this folks .
Now , what I almost forgot to do was add my little green , you know , my little parsley because you know what , we gotta have some color right now , watch how this is and it does something a little bit better too .
Check it out when you go ahead and mix it all together .
You know what I mean ?
It's just the way it changes the texture .
The , the green is like deep up in there .
You know , we just do it like that super easy .
Check out this presentation and as I'm moving and I'm looking , I was no rice and guess what ?
Folks , I forgot all about my little friends right here .
So now that is what the best part , you know what I mean ?
I'll just go ahead and just get me some , put some on this plate right here .
That'll be enough for .
Now , let me get myself a fork and check it out .
It's going down .
Look at that right there .
Dirty rice .
The right amount of heat .
And then when it's hot like this , I'm talking about like the , the warm from being , you know , being freshly cooked .
You know the heat from the fire .
All of that .
Listen , just feels so good going down .
There's something about that like the Italian sausage , the spice from that and that creole kick .
Hey , I don't wanna say nothing .
