Cajun-Style Beef and Beans

FOGG26

"I make this recipe for my husband for lunch. He loves the Cajun Style Sausage and Rice, however it plays havoc on his stomach at times but I found this recipe doesn't do that and he enjoys it almost as much. If you like cheese it also tastes very good with some sprinkled on the top after you remove it from the oven. "

  1. Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir in the ground beef. Cook and stir until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease. Add chopped onion to beef and cook and stir for 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the cooked rice, beans, tomatoes, and Cajun seasoning. Pour into a casserole dish.
  4. Cover and bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes until hot, stirring once.

Like the other reviewer, not saucy enough and the Cajun seasoning is too much. The heat is right but is too salty. My husband is suggesting only 1 tbsp of the Cajun seasoning and 1 tbsp of chili...

Using minute rice is fine for this recipe, but the cajun is a bit much. I give it 4 stars because it's a good base recipe, but would need more of a broth and less seasoning to make it smoother....

Very easy recipe and even the kids loved it. Used the Creole Seasoning recipe from this site.

Used Tony Cacheres in place of "Cajun seasoning" and it was WAY too spicy for the kids. I like the idea of cutting in 1/2 and adding chili powder - will try that next time. Not true red beans ...

I found this recipe looking for something to make with ingredients I already had so I didn't have to go to the store. I used ground turkey in place of beef. I added freeze dried garlic and some ...

Next time I would sprinkle half the spice on the onion and beef while. browning. Sprinkle of cheese on top is great.

very good i will make this again. i did not use a full 2 t of cajun seasoning i used 1.5 approx and its perfect.
