Grits & Grillades
Contributed by Innkeeper Janice DeLerno of The Stockade Bed & Breakfast, Baton Rouge, LA.

Like many of the recipes in South Louisiana, Grits & Grillades was introduced by the Creole people. The French & Spanish settlers brought their own styles of cooking and blended them with local crops to create dishes as hot and sultry as the Louisiana nights. Grillades (pronounced gree-yahds) is a rich, dark gravy with braised meat served over creamy, garlic cheese grits. The Creoles served it for midday brunch or late night suppers after their Mardi Gras balls.
NUMBER OF SERVINGS: 16

NECESSARY UTENSILS: Tenderizing Mallet, Sauté Skillet, Stock Pot, 2 Qt Sauce Pan, 9 x 13 casserole dish.

INGREDIENT LIST (Grillades):
4-5 lbs. beef or veal round steak
flour for dredging
Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning
Granulated Garlic
Vegetable Oil for browning meat
1 c. chopped onion
1 c. chopped celery
½ c. chopped green pepper
½ c. chopped red pepper
1 c. chopped green onions
4-5 cloves chopped garlic
3 c. water
1 c. white wine
3 c. Rotel tomatoes
Bay leaf, salt, pepper, & Worcestershire sauce for seasoning
Parsley for garnish

STEPS:
1) Tenderize meat with mallet and cut into strips
2) Season meat with Tony’s & Granulated Garlic
3) Dredge meat in flour and pan sauté in oil until brown
4) Remove meat from skillet and add flour to make a medium dark roux
5) Add vegetables and cook until soft
6) Add remaining ingredients and put into stockpot for simmering until meat is tender (about 1 hour or so)
7) Add more liquid if necessary.
8) Garnish with parsley & green onions and serve over grits

Have fun with this dish and remember that you can tailor it to your specific taste, seasoning wise. It is meant to cook for a long time until the meat is so tender that you can cut it with a fork. The Grillades are served over the Grits below.

Bon appetite and, as we say in South Louisiana, “Laissez le Bon Temps Rouler!” (Let the good times roll!)
