Prepping in Advance & Time-saving Tips:
1) Pat your meet dry in advance and store in the fridge in an airtight container. DO NOT season with salt and pepper until ready to cook.
2) Use baby carrots instead of whole carrots to save on chopping time.
3) Chop the carrots and onions in advance and store in an airtight container in the fridge. (Wait to chop the garlic and herbs until right before cooking)
4) Browning in 2-3 batches can take several minutes per batch. If you are short on time, simply brown one batch only to get the yummy brown bits on the bottom of the pan.
