This particular day, I was in the mood for a plentiful southern breakfast. Steak, cheese scrambled eggs and grits. This dish was quite simple to prepare and execute.
I chose porterhouse steaks because they are meatier, however T-bones are good too! I really like The Classic Jack Daniels Marinade, which can be purchased from any grocery store. This marinade gives a wonderful smoked hickory taste to the steak. I then place the 2 steaks in the marinade bag and allow them to sit in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours prior to grilling.
Thirty minutes before grilling your meats, Que up the grill. Remove your steaks from the refrigerator and allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. When your coals are nice and hot, glowing with a reddish-orange glow, place steaks on the grill. Sear on one side for 5-10 minutes, then turn them over with tongs and sear on opposite side. Close all the vents on your grill and cook steaks for 15-20 minutes. If you like your steak medium-rare, then remove steaks from grill and place in sealed cookware to maintain a warm temperature. However, if you prefer your steak well done, remove steaks from grill to prevent over cooking and place in oven on 350 degrees. Cook for 15-20 minutes until meat is well done.
The grits are quite simple…
You will need Mexican or mild cheddar shredded cheese, Tones Chives, instant grits, ground pepper, and ¼ stick of unsalted butter. Follow the directions on instant grits container according to desired serving size. Add ¼ stick of butter and ¼ teaspoon of ground pepper to cooked grits. Stir thoroughly when butter is completed melted. Leave grits on low heat, to keep hot!
AND NOW WE WILL SCRAMBLE OUR EGGS…
You will need 1-2 eggs, 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter, ¼ teaspoon of ground pepper, medium size pan or griddle and ¼ cup mild cheddar or Mexican cheese. Heat pan to medium high heat, then place butter in pan. When butter is completely melted, crack egg and drop egg yolk and whites in pan one at a time. Sprinkle pepper on eggs. Take a spatula and stir eggs continuously until fluffy and cooked. Try not to overcook the eggs. They should look yellow and fluffy. Remove pan from fire and sprinkle cheese on eggs. Place eggs on plate(s) with grits, and steak! If serving size is more than this recipe indicates, double the ingredients.
