  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup long grain white rice (uncooked)
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 pounds crawfish (frozen peeled, tails, thawed)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Creole seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil. Stir in rice. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed.
  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium baking dish.
  3. In a large, heavy skillet over medium heat, stir together ground beef, onion, celery, green bell pepper, red bell pepper and garlic. Cook until beef is evenly browned and vegetables are tender.
  4. Stir cooked rice, crawfish tails, pecans, butter, and green onions into the ground beef mixture. Season with Creole seasoning and pepper. Continue cooking about 3 minutes, until well mixed. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly browned.
  6. Garnish with parsley.
