It's Mardi Gras today and I'm bringing Creole Beef and Rice Bowls to the party!

My first visit to New Orleans was magical.  I fell in love with everything NOLA, including it's amazing cuisine. Since that first visit, I've been back many times. Each trip being better than the last! So, as a tribute to the great city of NOLA, I make special dishes each year for my family to enjoy on Fat Tuesday.

In the past, I've made Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya and New Orleans Style Bread Pudding to celebrate. But, when I came across this recipe for Creole Beef, I thought it would make a nice change up for the menu. The original recipe came from Certified Angus Beef® brand.  It called for round steak, but I subbed in sirloin because that's what I had on hand.

It was a great swap!  The Certified Angus Beef® brand sirloin cooked up nice and tender and the Creole seasoning really kicked up the flavor! I also think a flat iron steak would work great in this recipe too.

It's not the prettiest dish of food, but it is quite tasty! And, it's a fun way to celebrate Mardis Gras with the flavors of NOLA or enjoy a quick and easy meal anytime of the year!
