Step 1

Brown pork sausage: In a Dutch oven or high-sided large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the pork sausage and cook, undisturbed for 2 minutes. Use a spatula to flip the pork over and season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook, undisturbed for an additional 2 minutes. Use a wooden spoon to stir and break the pork up into large crumbles. Cook the crumbled of pork 1 more minute undisturbed. Use a large, slotted spoon to remove the sausage to a paper towel-lined plate and set aside. (Note: Pork will continue to cook in next steps)

Step 2

Brown the andouille: Add the andouille sausage to the pan. Cook, undisturbed for 2 minutes. Stir and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the andouille is well caramelized about 2 additional minutes. Use a large, slotted spoon to remove the andouille sausage to a separate paper towel-lined plate and set aside. (Note: If you have a lot of fat in the pan, drain off or blot all but 1 tablespoon of fat from the pan before proceeding with the next step.)

Step 3

Add vegetables + seasonings: Reduce the heat to medium and add the bell peppers, onion and celery. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened, about 6-8 minutes. Add the garlic, Cajun seasoning and cayenne. Season with ½ teaspoon of salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper. Cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Step 4

Add the rice + broth: Return the pork sausage to the pan. Add the rice, broth and bay leaf (if using). Stir everything together, using the back of your spoon to gently scrape up any brown bits stuck to the bottom of the pan.

Step 5

Boil, Simmer, Cover and Cook: Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat and then immediately reduce the heat to maintain a simmer. Cover the pan and simmer for 20-22 minutes, or until the rice is cooked and tender.

Step 6

Let steam off heat then add andouille: Remove the pan from the heat and let sit COVERED for 5 minutes. Remove the cover. Remove and discard bay leaf. Fluff the rice with a fork and stir in the andouille. Taste and adjust for seasoning with salt and pepper.

Step 7

Serve: Garnish with green onions and parsley. Serve and enjoy!
