Cajun Steak and Mushrooms
This recipe makes the best gravy. Make sure you have plenty of rice and French bread. We believe, “that it is all in the gravy”.
2 New York strip Steaks, room temperature
2 teaspoons Slap ya Mama, Cajun Seasoning
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup onions, sliced
¾ cup bell pepper, sliced
3 tablespoons garlic, minced
8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
2 tablespoons Creole mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
10 ½ ounces beef consommé
Season steaks on both sides with Cajun seasoning.
Heat the oil in a large black skillet over medium high heat. Sear each steak on each side for 3 – 4 minutes.
Remove steaks and add the flour to the skillet. Reduce heat to medium. Cook for 4 – 5 minutes, stirring constantly, making a dark roux.
Add onions, bell pepper, garlic and mushrooms to the roux. Season vegetables with salt and pepper.
Raise the heat to medium high heat and add the consommé.
Bring the mixture to a boil, add steaks and continue to stir the sauce until it thickens about 5 minutes (turn steaks during this process). Add Creole mustard and simmer for a few minutes.
