Beef Bourguignonne-Topped Potatoes

Cooking Light APRIL 2000

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 potato and 1 cup topping)


  • 4 baking potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 2 (6-ounce) beef tenderloin steaks, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter or stick margarine
  • 4 medium shallots, peeled and quartered
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
  • 1 (8-ounce) package presliced mushrooms
  • 3/4 cup beef broth
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • Thyme sprigs (optional)


Pierce potatoes with a fork; arrange in a circle on paper towels in microwave oven. Microwave at high 16 minutes or until done, rearranging potatoes after 8 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.

While potatoes cook, combine beef, flour, salt, and pepper in a large zip-top plastic bag; seal and shake to coat.

Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef mixture and shallots; stir-fry 5 minutes. Add thyme, garlic, and mushrooms; stir-fry 3 minutes. Add broth and wine; cook 5 minutes or until shallots are tender and sauce thickens, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.

Split potatoes open with fork; fluff pulp. Spoon beef mixture evenly over potatoes. Garnish with thyme sprigs, if desired.
