1 pound lean ground beef 1/2 cup finely diced bell pepper 1/3 cup diced green onions 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon celery flakes 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning 1/4 teaspoon red pepper 4 cups long grain rice, cooked and drained 1/4 cup water (more as needed) 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
In fry pan stir ground beef and bell pepper. Cook over medium high heat until beef loses its pink color and bell pepper is soft. Remove excess grease. Turn temperature down to medium or medium low.
Add remaining ingredients; stir and cook together until ground beef is completely cooked and liquid is gone - about 25 to 35 minutes. More Creole seasoning and red pepper may be added for taste.

This recipe was pretty good although I think it should read "4 cups cooked long grain rice" as 4 cups raw rice will yield about 8 cups cooked - which would feed way more people. Or, maybe it just depends on how ricey vs beefy you want your dish!

Fantastic flavor but I agree with the others that 4 cups of rice would have been too much (I cut it down as recommended).

AMAZING! It was easy to prepare and had all of the flavor that I hoped for. The only tweaks I made included: 1) Use 3 cups of rice as opposed to 4 and 2) Use brown rice for better texture. One piece of advice: Make sure to mince onions VERY finely...

I had to adjust this a bit as I had some leftover rice to use so I scaled it down to serve two people. I think I did ok as it tasted pretty good!

I thought this recipe was delicious. I did cut the amount of rice in half. As far as the other reviewer stating it was bland, the recipe did state to add more cajun and red pepper to taste once everything was combined. So if you did that there is no way it would be bland. Will make again.
