Browning Meat for a Stew

When you are preparing a stew or pot roast recipe that calls for browning the meat, put your meat on a rack in a shallow pan and broil on high until the top is browned. Turn it and brown the other side the same way. The fat will drip to the bottom and you will be ready to continue with your recipe. If you are adding carrots and other vegetables to your dinner, you can clean them under running water with a small natural bristle brush, rather then peel off the extra nutrients contained in the skin.

I almost never peel carrots or potatoes. There's a whole lot of nutrients in that skin!

It is actually a good idea to peel potatoes before using, at least just to check if there is a green layer right under the skin. If there is, peel away all the green. It is toxic.
