Grove Notes:

-Works well on a grill at 350f, using a cast iron dutch oven.

-the 1 1/2 cup of water/tomato reserve noted in the text seems to be scaled to if the recipe is based on 1/2 lb of sausage. If you scale the recipe up or down, adjust accordingly.

-The "del monte cajun" ingredient appears to have been a canned diced tomato product from Del Monte. We just use a can of diced tomatoes with cajun seasoning thrown in.

-I also like to add the bell pepper with the celery and rice, instead of waiting until 20 minutes.

-I added the parsley at 20 minutes and cooked 5 more minutes. Don't know why they repeated that twice in the text but I don't think they meant 10 minutes of cook time after the parsley is added.

Alert editor   

Cooking in a dutch oven after mixing in the rice, seasoning, and bell pepper.

This recipe can be done on the grill, using a cast iron dutch oven and the grill set at a cooking temp of 350f.

Mix half ground beef with hot sausage to calm some heat, but very good!
