  • Make sure the meat is trimmed of as much visible silver skin as possible.
  • Brown the meat in small batches as you do a stir-fry. Ensure the pan is hot when you add the meat, it should sizzle when it goes in.
  • Make sure the casserole simmers as it cooks – it must not be allowed to boil or the result will be tough, chewy meat.
  • A healthy serving of beef or lamb is about the size of a deck of cards.
