Read the recipe then review
I think the recipe said it wasn't a traditional "dirty rice dish". Typically brown rice takes longer to cook, steamed or otherwise. Criticism for criticism sake doesn't seem very productive.

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.

Regarding the comment by Lucille about the cooking time for the rice, brown rice DOES take about 50 minutes to cook, longer than white/basmati/jasmine rice.

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 .

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

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