Grillades and Garlic Cheese Grits

Grillades and GArlic Cheese Grits

Grillades and grits are a Louisiana brunch tradition. If you have not tried them, you are in for a treat. The Garlic Cheese Grits are fabulous with grillades, but can also be served as a side dish for any meat, poultry or seafood for breakfast or dinner.



  • 3/4 pound lean, boneless flank steak
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour, browned
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 (14.6 ounce) can low-sodium beef broth
  • 1 (14.6 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 cups Garlic Cheese Grits

Garlic Cheese Grits

  • 1 cup yellow grits
  • 3 3/4 cups water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup sharp Cheddar cheese, grated


  1. Grillades: Combine the pepper, salt, flour, poultry seasoning and garlic powder. Cut the steak into cubes and pound to 1/2-inch in thickness to tenderize. Rub seasonings into steak.
  2. Heat a large roasting pan or Dutch oven; spray with vegetable cooking spray. Brown the meat on all sides.
  3. Remove meat from pan and hold.
  4. Add the onions and bell pepper to the pan and sauté 2 minutes.
  5. Return the meat to the pan. Then, while stirring, add the beef broth, crushed tomatoes, and bay leaf. Cook for 40 minutes, or until sauce has thickened to a rich consistency and meat is tender.
  6. Serve over Garlic Cheese Grits or plain grits.
  7. Garlic Cheese Grits: Combine the grits, garlic, water and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly to prevent clumps. Cook for 10 minutes.
  8. Fold in the pepper and cheese. Place in a baking pan uncovered and bake at 325 degrees F for 25 minutes.
  9. Allow to sit 15 minutes before serving.
