Steak in a gravy

Cajun Steak in a Gravy

Start by cutting up onions, bell pepper, celery and garlic. 

Next get a dry black iron pot hot. Season meat with salt and pepper then brown on both sides. Remove meat from pan. Add a tablespoon of oil, and all of the veggies except for the garlic. Once there is a little moisture from the veggies, add the garlic.

Once the veggies are tender, add a little flour, couple or so tablespoons. Stir in well to the veggies and cook a minute or so to get rid of the raw flour taste.  I added the broth and if it needs to be darker you can add the kitchen bouquet.  Now just simmer, stirring occasionally till meat is tender and gravy has thickened a little.

Baked Stuffed Flounder

Start by putting a little olive oil and butter in a skillet. Saute' onion, bell pepper, celery, and garlic seasoned with a little salt and pepper till veggies are all soft.

Don't use the expensive shrimp and crab in this. The canned one is fine.

One of my favorite finds at Dollar Tree recently! It is to strain cans and works well.

Add the shrimp and crabmeat after draining well. Stir and add in just enough bread crumbs to tighten up the mixture. You don't want alot of breading, or at least I don't.

Once it is mixed well take off heat and allow to cool.

This went into the fridge till I was ready to stuff the fish.

Finished product. I stuffed them and seasoned with salt and pepper. Also sprayed some butter flavored cooking spray over them. Then bake for about 20 minutes at 400. Enjoy! We sure did!
