If you want a dish that’s truly Southern, you’ll end up trying this Charleston Red Rice recipe. Made from Charleston to Savannah, this recipe comes from the descendants of slaves, called the Gullah or the Geechee, depending on the region. What makes this a “red rice” dish is that it’s rice cooked in tomato broth with bacon or another pork product and served as a side dish. With this recipe, you’ll enjoy a rice dish that’s cooked to satisfy and looks so tempting that even people who don’t like rice will have a second look.
