    Default Guyana Recipes

    Chicken Pilau

    Country(ies): Guyana

    INGREDIENTS

    1 chicken, cut into 8 pieces
    1 cup of washed rice
    lb margarine
    1 lb chopped onion
    1 lb tomatoes, mashed
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp sugar
    tsp thyme
    tsp hot pepper, chipped
    2 cups of chicken broth

    METHOD


    Into a large pot, put the margarine, and when it is hot but not smoking, add the chopped onion. Simmer over low heat for 10 minutes. Add the mashed tomatoes, salt, sugar, thyme and pepper. Simmer down until sauce is thick. Add the chicken to the sauce and stir well. Simmer for 20 minutes. Add chicken broth and rice. Cover and simmer over the lowest heat. Stir once.

    Note:

    Shrimp pilau is made the same way; just substitute 2 pounds of clean, raw shrimp and cook until the rice is fluffy - about 40 minutes.

    Dirty Rice
    Recipe compliments of "A Taste of Guyana" - Dr. Odeen Ishmael.

    Ingredients
    1 lb. beef, cut into little pieces
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 medium celery rib, chopped
    1 garlic clove, minced
    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1 lb. chicken liver, trimmed, pureed and chopped finely
    1 oz. margarine
    2 cups of water
    tablespoon salt
    1 chicken bullion cube
    teaspoon dried thyme
    teaspoon black pepper
    cayenne pepper, chipped
    1 cups rice

    Preparation
    Heat margarine in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add beef, stirring often, until brown, about 5 minutes.
    Transfer beef to paper towels to drain, and set aside.
    Add the onion, celery and garlic to the pan. Cook, stirring often, until softened, about 5 minutes.
    Add the flour and stir for about one minute.
    Add the chicken liver puree. Cook until the puree loses its redness and is semi-solid, about 3 minutes.
    Add water, salt, cube, thyme and black and cayenne peppers. Bring to a boil.
    Stir in the rice, add the beef and return to a boil.
    Reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed.
    Note: So-called dirty rice gets its name from the chicken livers which give it a brownish color.
