  • 3/4 lb lean grass-fed ground beef

  • 1/2 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper seeded and finely chopped

In a large skillet, cook beef with 1 1/2 teaspoons of the Cajun seasoning over medium-high heat until browned, about 10 minutes. Add onion, celery, pepper, jalapeño and 1 1/2 teaspoons of the Cajun seasoning and cook until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Add broth, stir to scrape up any browned bits and cook until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in beans and cook until heated through. Meanwhile, toss warmed rice with remaining 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning. Stir parsley into beef and bean mixture and spoon over rice.
