Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil. Stir in rice. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium baking dish.
  3. In a large, heavy skillet over medium heat, stir together ground beef, onion, celery, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, and garlic. Cook until beef is evenly browned and vegetables are tender.
  4. Stir cooked rice, crawfish tails, pecans, butter, and green onions into the ground beef mixture. Season with Creole seasoning and pepper. Continue cooking about 3 minutes, until well mixed. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.
  5. Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned. Garnish with parsley

Entirely too spicy and hot and the pecans gave it this really weird texture.

I thought this recipe was great, I have used it several times, and it is always a hit. It's a little spicy, but a nice change from the same old dressing. I plan to try stuffing a turkey with it in the future.

I made this for Thanksgiving this year. It was such a hit!! This recipe is amazing! Sooo delicious! Next time I make it though, I think I will substitute sausage instead of ground beef. I added a little extra creole seasoning and it was perfect. I also think I chopped the pecans too finely. The toasted bigger chunks were great! Everyone should try this!

I made this for Thanksgiving this year because I'm not a fan of bread dressings. I followed the recipe exactly and my entire family loved it! They wouldn't let me take the leftovers home with me - Thank you for the great recipe!

I've been making this for thanksgiving and Christmas dinner now for about four years. Everyone loves it! I'm not allowed to attend any family gatherings without bringing it.
