Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1.5 cups dry rice (+3 cups water, cooked)
    3 large carrots, diced
    6 celery ribs, diced
    1 large onion, diced
    1 large bell pepper, diced
    1 lb Italian Sausage (mild or hot), casing removed
    1 cup chicken broth
    1 tbsp cajun seasoning

Tips

Allowing the meat to brown and stick to the bottom of the pan creates a wonderful rich flavour.


Directions

Cook rice according to package directions.
Dice vegetables into small pieces and put into a large bowl for convenience.
Remove italian sausage from casings and put into a large non-non-stick stockpot on high heat. Cook sausage on high heat, breaking up chunks, until no longer pink.
Turn down heat slightly and allow sausage to start to stick to the bottom of the pan without stirring. Once it starts to brown well and stick, stir the meat around a bit and then allow to stick again.
Once there is a nice dark brown crust on the bottom of your pan, add all the vegetables and cook until onions start to turn translucent. This will start to bring up the crust on the bottom of the pan.
Add 1/2 the chicken stock and deglaze the pan, scraping all the bits off the bottom of the pan. Add remaining stock and cajun seasoning. Cook until almost completely reduced, with a few tbsps of liquid left.
Add cooked rice and stir well to combine. Taste and add salt if necessary.
