Cajun Rice Dressing

For years my friend, Dee, has been talking about her rice dressing and how she adds a can of “mushroom steak sauce” to it.

Mushroom steak sauce? What is this stuff?

It comes in a small can. It looks like this.

I must tell you, it makes for a deliciously moist rice dressing.

Dee told me how she makes her rice dressing, and I tried to make it as close to hers as possible (in a smaller batch).

Here’s what I did, you should give it a try!!!


In a large Magnalite, brown 1 lb Jimmy Dean (regular). Add onion, garlic, celery, green onion, green bell pepper. Cook for 20 minutes or so, you will want the veggies very soft.

Add a container of Savoie’s Dressing Mix (found in the frozen aisle, I didn’t have time to thaw it so I defrosted & cooked it all in the pot)

Let cook for another 20-30 minutes until fully defrosted and cooked completely.

Add the can of mushroom steak sauce. Let simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes.

Stir in cooked rice.

Season to taste.
