• Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash and dry produce. • Dice potatoes into ½-inch pieces. Place in a large pot with enough salted water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Reserve ½ cup potato cooking liquid, then drain. Return potatoes to pot.
• Meanwhile, cut broccoli into bite-size pieces if necessary. Halve, peel, and thinly slice shallot; finely chop a few slices until you have 1½ tsp (2½ tsp for 4 servings). • Toss broccoli on a baking sheet with a drizzle of oil, salt, and pepper. • Roast on top rack until browned and tender, 12-15 minutes.
• Pat beef* dry with paper towels and season generously all over with salt and pepper. • Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add beef and cook to desired doneness, 4-7 minutes per side. • Turn off heat; transfer to a cutting board. (TIP: Cover with foil to keep warm.) Rinse and wipe out pan.
• Meanwhile, in a small microwave-safe bowl, combine half the vinegar (you’ll use more later), 1 tsp sugar (2 tsp for 4 servings), ½ tsp water (1 tsp for 4), salt, and pepper. Stir in sliced shallot, then cover with plastic wrap. Microwave for 1 minute. Remove plastic wrap and transfer 1 TBSP pickling liquid (2 TBSP for 4) to a separate small bowl. • To bowl with pickling liquid, whisk in mustard and 2 TBSP olive oil (4 TBSP for 4). Season dressing with salt and pepper to taste.
• Mash potatoes with 2 TBSP butter (3 TBSP for 4 servings) until smooth and creamy, adding splashes of reserved potato cooking liquid as needed. Season generously with salt and pepper. Keep covered off heat until ready to serve.
• Heat a drizzle of oil in pan used for beef over medium heat. Add chopped shallot and cook, stirring, until softened, 1-2 minutes. • Stir in jam, stock concentrates, remaining vinegar, and ¼ cup water (1⁄3 cup for 4 servings). Bring to a simmer; cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes. • Remove from heat. Stir in 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4) until melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
• In a medium bowl, combine mixed greens, broccoli, pickled shallot (draining first), and as much dressing as you like. • Thinly slice beef against the grain. • Divide beef, mashed potatoes, and salad between plates. Spoon sauce over beef and serve.
