With bold flavors and a little spice, these Cajun-inspired steak grillades can tame even the wildest appetite. A minimal amount of ingredients and a mixture of spices you probably have in your cupboard make this recipe quick and simple, yet bursting with flavor.
This fast, satisfying meal is adapted from a Louisiana favorite, steak grillades [gree-YAHDS]. Strips of round steak simmered in a rich brown sauce makes one of the best (and easiest) dinners you’ll eat.
Round steak is a great cut — it’s inexpensive and, since it includes the tender top round and flavorful sirloin cuts, it’s surprisingly good. Plus, the beefy flavor of round steak can hold its own against assertive Cajun spices. This recipe includes a homemade mix of spices common in Cajun cooking, but if you have a favorite store-bought blend, feel free to use that instead.
Combine paprika, salt, garlic powder, black pepper, cayenne, onion powder, oregano, and thyme for the Cajun spice blend. Season steak strips with spice mixture, then dredge in flour.
Cook bacon in a nonstick skillet until crisp; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Add onions and bell peppers to skillet with drippings and sauté over medium-high heat, 3 minutes.
Serve steak mixture over Cheese Noodles; garnish with tomatoes and parsley.
