This board may call it sacrilege, but given we already have a standard dirty rice, I'm thinking your idea but stewing down tomatoes rice and peppers, then adding shrimp, then stuffing into pork loin instead of thighs. (My thighs are bone in)

I like.



As for mirliton, all the ones at rouses felt a little too firm. The casserole is a staple otherwise.

Thank you!

You wanna use all those ingredients?

If not I'd suggest a crawfish and andouille cornbread dressing. Only thing missing from your list is the cornbread. And I like to add tasso as well. If I don't make it every year I'd probably be shot.
