I will never alter this recipe. It is just perfect as it was written. I found it on Genius kitchen by Folkdiva as a true cajun dirty rice. We eat a LOT of this.
2 pounds ground beef
2 cups onion, chopped
1 cup green bell pepper, chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup dark roux – bacon grease/flour
1 tablespoon cajun seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
6 cups beef stock
2 bay leaves
2 tablespoons worcestershire
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1 teaspoon black pepper
15 cups cooked white rice
Garnish: green onion, fresh parsley, hot sauce
In a skillet, brown the beef. Do not drain. Add all the veggies. Cook on low for 10-20 minutes or until very cooked. Add roux. Continue to stir. Add the remaining ingredients except rice and garnishes. Cover and simmer on low for 2 hours. Stir every 30 minutes.

After each 40 minutes of cooking:
