Cajun Dirty Rice Dressing

My early years were split between rural east Texas and the heart of Louisiana's Cajun Country....back in my elementary days (before school lunches came frozen in boxes) this was a lunch room staple in Lafayette, Louisiana.....prepared daily by the mother's of my Cajun friends who worked part time in the school cafeteria. To this day a big helping of hot Dirty Rice takes me back to 4th grade! This recipe, from Chef Patrick Mould, calls for ground pork and beef only; which works well for me because, if I'm the one doing the cooking, I simply can not deal with chicken livers!This makes a LOT of Dirty if your not cooking for a lunch room full of hungry kids, you may want to 1/2 or even 1/4 the recipe.For the 'dark roux' I recommend you reference Gumbo Base (Aka Roux) by chef #15851
