Big Daddy's Dirty Rice

1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground pork
2 Tbsp bacon grease
3 cans chicken broth
1 cup water
3 cups rice, uncooked
1 lb smoked sausage, sliced
1 onion, chopped
1/2 cup green onions, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
1/2 cup parsley, chopped
3 Tbsp crushed garlic
3 Tbsp Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning
1 tsp black pepper

In a heavy stock pot, cook ground beef and pork in bacon grease until very done (when you think you've cooked it long enough, cook it some more). Add smoked sausage, onion, greens onions, bell pepper, and celery. Cook until onions start to become transparent. Stir in garlic and parsley. Add chicken broth and water to meat and vegetable mixture and bring to a boil. Add rice and seasonings. Bring back to a boil, stir once, reduce heat to simmer. Cover and cook until rice is done and liquid is absorbed. The rice freezes well in Ziplock bags. Microwave to reheat.

Note: It is extremely important to use a a heavy, thick bottomed pot for this recipe so the rice will not stick. Avoid lifting lid during cooking, except to stir once, to avoid scorching.

This recipe was created by my Daddy years ago and is a much requested favorite at family reunions, church potlucks, holidays and tailgate parties!

Thanks Dad!
