What could be more inviting than a steaming jacket potato piled high with steak in a rich red wine sauce?


  • 2 x 225g (8oz) potatoes, scrubbed
  • 1tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 large onions, sliced
  • 175g-225g (6-8oz) British rump steak, cut into strips
  • 1tsp Dijon mustard
  • 4tbsp red wine
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Freshly chopped parsley to serve

Instead of steak, try filling the jacket potato with a chicken or vegetable stir-fry.


  1. Preheat oven to 200C (400F, gas mark 6). Scrub the potatoes and place in the oven for 1 hr 15 mins or until soft throughout.
  2. After the potatoes have been cooking for 45 mins, heat the oil and gently fry the onions until golden brown and soft (this should take about 15 mins).
  3. Increase the heat, add the steak and fry for 3-4 minutes or until cooked. Stir in the mustard, wine and seasoning, and continue to cook for 1 min.
  4. When the potatoes are cooked, cut them almost in half lengthways and spoon in the steak and onion filling. Serve immediately with freshly chopped parsley
