Ground Beef Dirty Rice with Shrimp
I had found a Dirty Brown Rice with Shrimp recipe that I wanted to try but when I went to cook my rice I discovered I didn't have enough brown rice to complete the dish. That's when I spotted the Vigo Saffron Yellow Rice. The original recipe called for onions and bell pepper but when I read the ingredients on the Vigo package I discovered they were already included. As I did what I tell everyone else to do 'Think With Your Taste Buds' I decided my version of the original recipe would work perfectly. Well it was almost perfect. When I tasted my dish I noticed a flavor that was missing. Since it's made with ground beef instead of sausage I knew exactly what that ingredient was - SAGE! After adding that last ingredient I had a really delicious Dirty Rice with Shrimp. One of my food testers was sure I had slipped sausage in instead of ground beef because he could taste the sage. The only thing he suggested was to add more red pepper flakes to heat it up a bit more. For me it was perfect. Find my recipe by going to Martha's Recipe Cabinet.
