Boston baked beans enjoy a long and popular heritage: They were traditional fare for Saturday evening meals among Puritan families in Boston in colonial days. The leftovers were then eaten as an accompaniment for Boston Brown Bread on the Sabbath when cooking was not allowed. The tradition of Saturday night baked beans is still alive in many Boston homes today. One theory is that baked beans were introduced to the Pilgrims by Native Americans who cooked beans in pits, using bear fat and maple syrup. Another is that New England seafarers brought the idea for the dish back with them from Africa. Whatever their origin, baked beans make a fine side dish for the steak and potatoes in this recipe.

2 cups dried navy beans, picked through and soaked overnight

TO PREPARE BEANS: Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Drain and rinse the beans and place in a saucepan. Add the water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and stir in the pork or bacon, onion, molasses, tomatoes, mustard, brown sugar, and salt. Transfer the mixture to a baking dish, cover with a lid, and bake in the oven for 1 1/2 hours. Remove the lid and stir the beans, adding more water if the beans are too dry. Replace the lid and continue cooking for 1 1/2 hours, or until the beans are tender. Remove from oven and set aside.

TO PREPARE POTATOES: Increase the oven temperature to 375 degrees F. Cut a short, deep slit in the top of each potato. Place on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 1 hour, or until tender. Let the potatoes cool slightly, Slice the top off each potato, cutting horizontally. Carefully scoop out the potato flesh, leaving the skin intact. Place the potato flesh in a bowl and set aside. Season the potato shells with salt and pepper.

Heat the butter in a heavy sauté pan or skillet. Add the shallots and garlic, and sweat over medium heat for 1 minute. Add the mushrooms, turn up the heat to medium-high, and sauté 2 minutes longer. Stir in the cream and heat through. Remove the pan from the heat, fold in the chives and thyme, and adjust the seasoning as necessary. Mash the potato pulp to the desired texture (smooth or lumpy) and fold the mushroom mixture into the mashed potatoes. Spoon the stuffing mixture into the potato shells and top with the cheese. Place the potatoes on a baking sheet and place in the oven to heat through and brown the cheese.

TO PREPARE STEAKS: Prepare the grill. (Alternatively, the steaks may be broiled or sautéed in a heavy pan or skillet using 1 tablespoon of hot olive oil or safflower oil; they will take approximately the same time to cook as they well on the grill.) To prepare the steaks, mix the salt, pepper, and paprika in a small bowl and coat the steaks with the mixture. Place the steaks on the hot grill and cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare or 5 to 6 minutes for medium.

Meanwhile, warm the beans through. To serve, place the steaks on one side of each warm plate and spoon the beans on the other side. Place a stuffed potato next to the beans, garnish with a sprig of thyme, and serve immediately.
