creole steak with jamalaya rice


  • 1 pound sirloin tip steaks, cut 1/4 inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 small green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon Creole seasoning, divided
  • 1 can (14 1/2 oz) no salt added or regular diced tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cup hot cooked brown rice


Heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat in 3-quart saucepan until hot. Add onion, celery, bell pepper and 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.

Stir in tomatoes and rice. Cover and continue cooking 2 to 4 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Keep warm.

Meanwhile, press remaining 1-1/2 teaspoons Creole seasoning evenly onto beef steaks. Heat 1-1/2 teaspoons oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Cooking in batches, place steaks in skillet (do not overcrowd) and cook 1 to 3 minutes for medium rare (145°F) doneness, turning once. (Do not overcook.) Remove from skillet; keep warm. Repeat with remaining steaks and oil.

Serve steaks topped with rice mixture.
