Expert Tips

  • If desired, cut beef into bite-size pieces, discarding fat and cartilage if necessary. Return beef to mixture in insert and serve.
  • Leftover beef makes a great sandwich, especially with a creamy horseradish spread.
  • Be sure to stir in cornstarch mixture very gently, since the vegetables will be very tender.
