Let's see, where was I?
Creole Beef Grillades and Cheese Grits was my selection waaaay back in November for the Sweet As Pie Cooking Club. I wanted to make one of Chef John Besh's dishes. I saw his show on APT and he prepared this dish using pork. When I searched the internet to check out the recipe, I ran across the beef version and decided to give it a try. A grillade is a traditional dish of south Louisiana. I saw where Emeril and Paula Deene also have a version.
I was concerned about the beef being tough, but it cooks a while so it turns out tender. I just threw together some cheese grits and didn't try John's version. The sauce is good stuff and the star of this dish!
