Healthy Recipe: Cajun Steak Bites

Ragin’ Cajun Steak

Creating Cajun butter steak bites with blue cheese grits isn’t difficult, but it requires constant activity so be rested when you cook. Start with chicken broth in a pan to cook the grits; you can add milk later. As the broth heats, add grits and stir regularly so they don’t turn into a blob.

For the steak bites, you first chop and dice onions. Then cut some button mushrooms in half and chop into bits; near the end of the process you’ll be cooking onions and mushrooms in the same pan as the meat. Then cut the steak into finger-like slices and remove the fat before cutting the fingers into smaller pieces.

Cold steak is easier…

Remember too that the colder the steak the easier it will be to cut it, so leave refrigerated (or just partially thawed) before you make tips.

To go with the steak, create a Cajun sauce. Mix garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, oregano, chili powder, salt and pepper, coriander, dried thyme, and a bit of brown sugar for sweetness.

Before you add this to the meat, grab some oil for cooking and let it get hot so it will sear the meat. Add a few inches of seasoning to each tip and put the steak in the pan, letting each side cook for 2-3 minutes.

Meanwhile, before your grits are done, add some salt and pepper and whisk in a couple tablespoons of butter—and finally the blue cheese. You finish by cooking the onions and mushrooms before ladling the steak tips over them. Sound good?
