quick dinner help: browning stew beef

jbeaux | Mar 26, 2008 07:23 PM

I'm making vegetable soup tonight for dinner and want to add stew beef. In times past, I've done this, but after browning the beef, it often turns tough on me. Is there a way I can tenderize it beforehand, or maybe simmer the soup on med-low, which will keep the meat from toughening?
