this is not dirty rice
Being from New Orleans I can tell you that this is not dirty rice, it is healthier, but not dirty rice, dirty rice is made with chicken livers or gizzards and has a butter in it and is not healty but great for a holiday or special occasion not to eat every day.

Not Really Dirty Rice
Sorry, this just isn't dirty rice. The key problem is that it won't taste anything like dirty rice should taste. I've been eating dirty rice for over 60 years, and cooking it for over 40. It has a characteristic liver flavor. You can't get that without some liver content. Mine uses livers and gizzards, and I don't any Cajun who cooks dirty rice without some chicken livers. If you want to eat brown rice with sausage, that's fine with me, but just call it something more appropriate.

This is NOT Dirty Rice!
I was born and raised in South Louisiana and am an award-winning cook. This is NOT dirty rice, also known in Louisiana as Rice Dressing. Dirty rice is made with rice, onions, ground meat (usually a mix of ground beef and ground pork liver) green onions and bell pepper. What was presented here is more like jambalaya, but still pretty far from that as well.

As the recipe explains, it's nontraditional
The recipe itself acknowledges that it's not traditional, in that it uses Wehani rice (which is a type of brown rice, and takes a lot longer to cook than white rice) and substitutes chicken sausage for gizzards. So to criticize it as unauthentic is unfair - it's an adaptation of traditional dirty rice. And frankly, dishes like this are made with what's on hand - gizzards, sausage, whatever. That's why there is no one "true" form of dirty rice, jambalaya, gumbo, etc.

HMMMM?
Ok number 1 this recipe is supposed to be healthier for you than a regular dirty rice straight from NEW ORLEANS. Number 2 white rice is quicker to boil than brown rice , so the 50 min for the brown rice could be accurate. I'm just saying .

Sounds more like a jambalya; dirty rice has ground beef.

Dirty Rice
Why would anyone cook rice for 50 mins, when it takes 20 steamed. Another thing Dirty Rice in New Orleans is made using chicken liver, and gissards, guess you can add the meats of our choice, but this isn't a true Dirty Rice recipe
