2/3 Cup Brown Rice
1 lb Pork Sausage
1 Small Onion, chopped
1 Celery Stalk, chopped
1 Green Bell Pepper, chopped
Salt & Pepper, to taste
3 Tablespoons Butter
3 Tablespoons Flour
2 Cups Chicken Stock

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Cook brown rice.

While the rice is cooking, brown the sausage in a large skillet over medium/high heat.  Add onion, celery and bell pepper, cooking until softened.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

While the sausage is cooking, melt butter in a medium saucepan.  Whisk in the flour and cook for 1 minute.  Slowly whisk in chicken stock.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes until thickened.
