Dirty Rice

Dirty Rice

Was made with 4 cups instant brown rice,(Success has 4-1 cup bags in a box), 1 lb ground turkey, 1 lb ground beef, 2 medium onions, 3 toes garlic, salt to taste (box could probably give you some idea how much--Engineer is on severely restricted low-salt diet), 3½ c. water or broth, ½ cup sliced shallots (gr. onions to the uninitiated), ½ chopped parsley.

Brown the meats, add the chopped onion and garlic, brown for a few minutes, add water or broth, cook until water cooks out (needed a little more broth than amt. recipe calls for); stir in shallots and parsley before serving. Two of our family liked it as was, son and I thought that something crunchy like celery or roasted chopped pecans would have made it even better! Hope you enjoy!
