Why do my meats stick when I try to brown them?

This has happened to me several times and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. First time was when I tried to make chicken dumplings and I had to brown the chicken thighs and when I went to turn them they stuck to the pan! The same thing happened when I browned a chuck pot roast, it stuck to the pan. I have a gas stove, and I always put the oil in the pan cold, then heat up both the pan and oil together. I use a tri-ply calphalon stainless steel 8 qt pot. A few people told me the pan was too hot, and since I have a gas stove it's hard to tell what's "medium" vs. "medium high" vs. "high" etc. :(
