Expert Tips

  • Cleaning out the pan after browning the beef helps cut down on cleanup after dinner, and don't fret about the caramelized onions sticking to your pan after you've washed it. When you add the broth, the liquid will help you scrape up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan and incorporate their flavor into the finished dish.
  • Using the microwave directions for the potatoes cuts down on prep time and saves a pan, too.
