Hot Rod Mediterranean Rice Dish
This spicy rice/sausage dish cooks in a crockpot, so by the end of the day your house will smell mouth-wateringly wonderful. All you need is a big bowl of salad and plenty of cold drinks. Serves 4.
1 1/2 cups uncooked rice
1/2 cup olive oil
4 cups V-8 vegetable juice
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, cut into strips
1 clove garlic, crushed
3/4 pound bulk Italian sausage
Salt, to taste
Brown rice in olive oil. Put V-8 juice in crockpot. Add onion, pepper, and garlic. Carefully add browned rice to crockpot (an entertaining sizzle results).
Brown sausage and add to crockpot; add salt. Cook on HIGH for 2 hours, then cook on LOW for 5 hours.
