This Dirty Rice is quick and easy Southern soul food at its finest. It makes in just 35 minutes and four easy steps–great for a hectic weeknight dinner. I could eat dirty rice most any time of year, but it is particularly good when the weather is turning cooler and you want something that will fill you up right without much hassle or time investment. And it is just piquant enough to excite your palate without coming anywhere close to setting your mouth on fire.
If you want the full Southern “soul food” experience, I do recommend cooking this with the bacon grease. That bacon flavor can work wonders with many a recipe, and it gives the recipe a more filling, savory kick. If you want a bit of a lighter-tasting dish, however, or if you need to watch your cholesterol, go with the olive oil.
