When it comes to some of our favorite classic Louisiana dishes, Dirty Rice is high on the list. This dish is a Louisiana tradition with a mixture of ground beef, seasonings and brown rice served as side or entrée. You can adjust the seasonings to your family’s palate. I had fun creating this budget friendly recipe using the Great Value brand for Walmart. Look for leaner cuts of meat ending in loin or round-ground sirloin!
