Rice Smoked Sausage

Dirty Rice with Sausage

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: 6 Servings


  • 2 cups long grain white rice
  • 5 cups chicken stock, divided
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 (18 oz.) package Uncle Charley’s Sausage (sliced)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a medium saucepan combine rice and 4 cups chicken stock. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until all the stock is absorbed into the rice, about 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a heavy-bottomed sauté pan over medium-high heat. In a large nonstick skillet, cook sausage 10-12 minutes, until browned. Once browned, take out sausage and cut into slices; place sausage back into sauté pan.
  3. Add garlic, onion, celery, and green bell pepper. Cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Add 1 cup chicken stock and cayenne. Cook until stock has reduced a little.
  5. Add cooked rice and parsley and stir thoroughly. Taste and season with salt and pepper, if necessary.
