Gigi’s Steak and Potatoes Burgundy
8 small new potatoes
1 large onion
1/2 pound fresh mushrooms
1 1/2 pounds boneless sirloin steak
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup fine-quality Burgundy
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon coarsely cracked
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crumbled
Beurre manié – 1 tablespoon flour and
1 tablespoon softened,
butter mixed to a paste
Bring 3 cups salted water to a boil. Scrub 8 small new
potatoes, add them
to the water, and boil them gently, covered, for about 20

they are just tender.
Peel and slice the onion. Clean, trim and halve the
mushrooms. Slice the
steak into 3-by-1/2-inch strips and season it with salt
and freshly ground
black pepper to taste.
Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large heavy skillet. Quickly

Remove steak to a plate and set aside.
Add the sliced onions, mushrooms, and garlic to the skillet.
Lower the heat and sauté the mixture, stirring, until vegetables are just

evaporated. Deglaze the
skillet with the wine, scraping up any browned bits.
Then add the water,
salt, pepper, and thyme. Cook, covered, for about 5
minutes. Stir the
beurre manié into the mixture and simmer, stirring, until
Drain the potatoes very well. (Peel them if you wish, but it
is not necessary.) Add them to the vegetables in the skillet, along with the
steak strips. Stir to combine well and cook just long enough to heat
through. Serve with a simple salad (Gigi preferred hearts of Romaine with
avocado, pink grapefruit seg- ments, and thinly sliced red onion, dressed with
classic vinaigrette), and
crusty, hot garlic bread. How many servings?
Well, Gigi seldom bothered
to make note of that, but I am estimating 4,
