Creole Crab And Rice Recipe

Step 1

Cook rice in 1-1/2 cups water until just tender and water is absorbed, about 18 minutes. Melt butter in medium skillet over moderate heat. Add onions and green pepper and cook until onions are transparent, 2-3 minutes. Add tomatoes with juice, Cajun seasoning, pepper, sugar, Worcestershire, bay leaf and cloves. Bring mixture to simmer and reduce heat to low. Cook, uncovered, 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove bay leaf. Stir in rice and crab meat. Taste and adjust seasonings. Transfer mixture to 1-1/2 quart casserole and sprinkle with cheese. Bake uncovered, at 375 F for 20 minutes. Makes 4-6 servings.
