      RECIPE TITLE "Emeril's Skillet Steak with Tasso Maque Choux and Fried Chanterelles Recipe"
    Source: Beef for All Seasons,
    Courtesy of:

    Emeril says, "This dish is a union of the best things Louisiana has to offer, including spicy tasso, Creole seasoning, locally grown chanterelles, and maque choux, as well as the Southern comfort of a fried steak. Maque Choux-pronounced 'mock shoo'-a fantastic accompaniment with skillet steak, is a spicy Cajun dish of corn and seasonings and every Cajun family has its own variation."

    1/3 cup diced tasso or spiced ham
    1 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels (from 2 ears corn)
    1/3 cup chopped onion
    1 tablespoon minced garlic

    Beef for All Seasons
    Beef for All Seasons Beef for All Seasons, provides a wide range of seasonal recipes using many different cuts of beef, among them beef tenderloin, tournedos, ground beef, short ribs, brisket, carpacio, and pot roast. The incredibly taste-tempting dishes here include Beef Picadillo Tacos de Oaxaca with Rice and Beans, Skewered Beef Satay with Peanut Sauce, James Beard's Roquefort Broiled Steak with Baked Potatoes, and Beef and Guinness Pie with Mushrooms and Chestnuts.


    FOR SEASONING: Combine all the Creole seasoning ingredients in a mixing bowl and reserve 5 teaspoons (store the remainder in an airtight jar or container for further use).

    FOR STEAKS: Trim the layer of fat from 1 edge of each strip steak, leaving the thicker piece of fat attached to help the meat keep its shape. (Omit this step if using rib-eye steak.) Sprinkle each steak with 1/2 teaspoon of the seasoning and pat in well with the palm of your hand or the side of a heavy knife. Heat the olive oil in a large cast-iron skillet set over high heat. When the oil is smoking, add the steaks and sear for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes per side for rare, 3 minutes per side for medium-rare, or to desired doneness. (Rib-eye steaks will take about 1 minute longer on each side.) Remove from the heat.

    FOR MAQUE CHOUX: Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. When the oil is hot, add the tasso and saute for 30 seconds. Add the corn and cook for 1 minute longer, shaking and flipping the pan frequently. Add the onion and sauté for 30 seconds more. Add the garlic, salt and a pinch of freshly ground black pepper, and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the cream, bell pepper, and scallions, and simmer until heated through, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.

    FOR MUSHROOMS: While the steaks are cooking, prepare the mushrooms. Heat 3 cups of the vegetable oil in a saucepan set over high heat. Combine the flour with the remaining 3 teaspoons of the reserved Creole seasoning in a bowl. Place the remaining 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a saucer, dip the chanterelles in the oil and then dredge in the seasoned flour, shaking off any excess. When the oil in the pan is smoking hot, add the chanterelles and fry until golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with salt to taste.

    To serve, place 1 cup of the maque choux on each serving plate. Place a steak on top of the maque choux and arrange the mushrooms on top. Garnish each steak with a sprig of thyme.

    WINE SUGGESTION: West Coast Pinot Noir or Bordeaux (less than 10 years old).

    4(20 oz) Porterhouse Premium Steaks Steak lovers cherish the Porterhouse, possibly because it's two steaks in one.

Individually wrapped so you may use just what you need at any given time.
