75 mins

8-10 servings




  • 6 cups Laura’s Farm Premium Long Grain Rice
  • 6 chicken livers
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1/4 pound butter
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 1 cup green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 tbsps garlic, minced
  • 1 pint select oysters in liquid
  • 6 cups cooked white rice
  • 1/2 cup green onions, sliced
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
  • Salt and cracked black pepper to taste


  1. Sauté

    • In a small sauté pan, poach chicken livers in lightly salted water until done. Remove and set aside to cool. Once cool, chop and reserve. Retain poaching liquid. In a large, heavy-bottom sauté pan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add ground beef and pork and sauté until golden brown and grains of meat are totally separated, approximately 30 minutes.
  2. Add vegetables

    • Add chopped chicken livers, onion, celery, bell peppers and garlic. Continue to sauté an additional 30 minutes or until vegetables are totally cooked. You may need to add the poaching liquid from the livers to keep the mixture moist during cooking.
  3. Add seafood and rice

    • Add oysters and oyster liquid and continue to cook until oysters have almost cooked away. Chop oysters into the meat mixture as they cook. Add cooked rice, stir well into the mixture and garnish using green onions, parsley and pecans. Season to taste using salt and black pepper.
  4. Enjoy

    • Serve as a rice casserole or use this recipe to stuff a turkey or duck.
