Author Chef Tiffany Blackmon


  • 1 tablespoon beef Flank steak about 1-1½ pounds
  • ½ cup red wine
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 3 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Creole seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon coarse ground black pepper

Okra and Carrots Sauté Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup onion chopped
  • ½ cup carrots chopped
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon coriander
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ cup tomatoes chopped
  • 16 ounce okra cut in 1-inch pieces

Creole Grits Ingredients

  • cups water
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon Creole seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup quick-cooking grits
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup jalapeño jack cheese shredded



  • Combine red wine, lime juice, garlic, Creole seasoning, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper in a food-safe plastic bag.  Add steak, close bag securely. Marinate in refrigerator for 6 hours to overnight.
  • Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 11 to 16 minutes (over medium heat on a preheated gas grill, 16 to 21 minutes) for medium-rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Allow it to rest.
  • Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions, carrots, cumin, coriander and chili powder. Sauté 3-5 minutes or until the onions are transparent. Add the tomatoes and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the okra and simmer 8-10 minutes or until the okra is cooked through.
  • For the grits, in a Dutch oven combine water, milk, Creole seasoning and salt. Bring to a boil.
  • Slowly add grits to hot liquid stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and cover, stirring occasionally, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, stir in the butter in cheese until melted.
  • Slice grilled steak against the grain. Serve with vegetables and grits.
