Recently I discovered the wonders of smoked rice (you can check out the “how to HERE). Once smoked, the rice can be used in any number of rice-based dishes including one of my favorites – low country red rice with bacon.
SMOKED LOW COUNTRY RICE
1lb. smoked rice
1 tbsp. olive oil
3 cups water
1 14.5oz. can diced tomatoes
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
Prepare grill for medium heat cooking, approximately 350 degrees. Place rice, olive oil, water and canned diced tomatoes with liquid in a medium sized casserole dish and stir to combine all of the ingredients. Cover the dish with lid or foil and place on the grill.
Cover the grill and allow the rice to cook until soft and fluffy, approximately 45 minutes. Add the crumbled bacon to the top and serve immediately.
