Grillades & Grits

So often one thing leads to another, and so it was when I made Shrimp & Grits with a Cajun Gastrique not too long ago! My sister came to visit shortly after and while she missed the Shrimp and Grits, she proposed we make Grillades. It was a good call and we were off on yet another New Orleans inspired adventure!

German Beef Rouladen with Mushroom Gravy . $10.00

My Mom (rest her soul) was a fantastic cook. Sure, she got sidetracked into some of the weirdness in the 60’s – Porcupine Balls, Tuna Casserole and Shake and Bake but later really found her “groove.” These Beef Rouladen, as she called them, were a family favorite – made on afternoons when she cooked for the sheer joy of it.

In our family, one of my Mom’s frequent Sunday meals was Swiss Steak. We lived only a block from Church and often walked, and I remember coming home to Swiss Steak in the oven. The smell wafted through the old house, greeting us the moment the door was opened.
