Meaty portobello mushrooms combine naturally with beef and red wine in this luscious, heady stew. We like to make this with a hearty Zinfandel and pour a glass to enjoy with the meal.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place steak in a medium bowl and sprinkle with flour; turn to coat. Reserve 1 teaspoon of the excess flour. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the steak and cook, stirring once or twice, until browned on most sides and still pink in the middle, about 3 minutes. Transfer the steak to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.

  • Add tomato, mushrooms and onions to the pot and cook, scraping up any browned bits, until the vegetables have released their juices, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle the reserved teaspoon of flour over the vegetables and stir to coat. Add broth, green beans, wine, thyme, salt and pepper; increase heat to high and bring to a boil, stirring often. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, stirring often, until the broth has thickened, about 5 minutes. Add the steak and any accumulated juices and cook, stirring often, until heated through, about 2 minutes.


Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate up to 3 days or freeze up to 3 months.

?Tips for Two: Leftover canned broth keeps up to 5 days in the refrigerator or up to 3 months in your freezer. Leftover broth in aseptic packages keep for up to 1 week in the refrigerator. Add to soups, sauces, stews; use for cooking rice and grains; add a little when reheating leftovers to prevent them from drying out.

I fixed this for dinner this evening and it was very good. Nice taste easy to put-together. If I weren't counting calories I would say about a half-stick of butter would really top this recipe off; and I would have marked it higher were it not for the fact that two bowls of this very tasty stew cost about 16 bucks.
