Meat and Gravy with Rice and Crawfish Bread

I know today is Mother's Day but we actually had our little celebration last night. Today we just didn't feel like doing a whole lot what with the dreary rainy weather here. I did decide to cook something that we love and just don't have often enough, I call it Rice and Gravy but it's actually more like Meat and Gravy with Rice. This is an old regular staple here in Louisiana in Cajun Country. I've talked about it before so I'll just touch on it lightly.
It's beef(this was bottom round steaks)simply seasoned with salt, black pepper and garlic powder(or granulated). Browned until it leaves a nice rich fond behind. Add onions and brow to deglaze the bottom of the pan and add water or a stock to make the gravy. Mmmm..........
Add the meat back into the pan, cover and simmer for an hour or two until the meat is fork tender. Make some fresh white rice and serve with the gravy over rice with a couple of pieces of meat and whatever sides you like and THAT is a fantastic meal!
Today I opened a can of peas and made some Crawfish Bread. I was going to make some mini crawfish pies this weekend but I started thinking about crawfish bread and couldn't get it out of my head.

While cooking I endulged in about a half dozen tequila and stawberry Jello Shots.

Getting ready to chop the crawfish tails.

Cheesy crawfish mixture spread on the bread and waiting for the oven to heat up.

Crawfish bread baked!

You know I was thinking that maybe this was too much crawfish bread for just four of us but this stuff is sooo good. Mmmmmm................

Dinner served!

Looking good. The meat dish would pass for smothered steak from my childhood days. Love the stuff. Real close to Carne Guisada or Beef tips for the gringos. Dat bread do look good too.
