Grillades /ɡree-yahds/ are medallions of various meats, conventionally beef, but veal and pork are also used in modern recipes. Often served with gravy at breakfast or brunch over grits, they are are a traditional Creole food.
Despite the name, grillades are not grilled, but fried or seared. For grillades with gravy, the meat is cut into medallions, pounded flat, seasoned and dredged in flour. The meat is then browned and braised in a flavorful liquid made up of roux and chopped or crushed tomatoes. The "trinity" (chopped bell pepper, onion and celery), garlic, beef broth and/or wine are called for in many recipes. Thyme, bay leaves and cayenne or hot sauce are common seasonings. The braising liquid is used as a gravy for the finished dish.
They are sold at many places in New Orleans, including Langenstein's.
