Yakamein is a classic Creole fusion of flavors. This meaty noodle soup AKA ‘Old Sober’ is iconically known in New Orleans for curing hangovers. We left it to @flychefaldenb to put a Tony’s twist on this staple dish.

  • Beef Marinade Ingredients: 

  • 1.5 lb chuck roast (cut into 1/2 inch strips)

  • 3/4 c Tony Chachere’s 30 minute Steakhouse Marinade

  • 1/2 lb shrimp (peeled and deveined)

  • 1 tsp Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning

Directions

  1. Marinate the beef and shrimp in the marinades for 30 minutes.
