This is the recipe that Miss Leah demonstrated on stage at the 2005 Chef’s Charity for Children. She was a special lady who will be greatly missed.

2 pounds Beef, cubed

3 tablespoons Molasses

3 tablespoons Yellow Mustard

4 strips Bacon

2 tablespoons minced Garlic

2 tablespoons chopped Green Onions

2 tablespoons chopped Parsley

2 dried Red Peppers ( I believe it is 2 teaspoons Cayenne pepper)

1/2 teaspoon Paprika

1/4 cup Red Wine

1 cup Water

Salt and Black Pepper

Place the bacon in hot skillet. Cook until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet. Set aside.

Season beef cubes with salt and pepper. Place in bacon drippings. Brown beef on all sides. Remove from skillet. De-glaze skillet with water, scraping pot well.

Stir in molasses, mustard, garlic and green onions. Return beef to pot. Stir well. Add parsley, paprika and red pepper. stir in wine. Let simmer for 30 to 35 minutes until beef is tender. Serve over rice.


Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!!!


I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at publishamerica.net and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.
