need to replace nonstick stir fry pan and don't know what to buy

For years, I've used an 11 inch analon stir fry pan. The interior has seen better days and I'd like to replace it, only I don't know what to replace it with. I use my stir fry pan mainly to cook ground meat or cut up beef and chicken along with veggies and sauce, usually a combination of chicken broth, olive oil, and tomato or an asian type sauce (different oils). I'm probably not using this pan as it was intended, as I hardly stir fry, but I love its size (about 3.5 qts), ease of use, and especially ease of clean up. It's my go to pan. Sometimes, I add pasta or rice that I've cooked in a separate pot just to coat with the sauce in the stir fry pan. Most other stir fry pans I've seen are a little smaller (10 inches) or too big for my ceramic stove top (12 inches plus). Also, I'm trying to get away from nonstick cookware. Any thoughts for a pan that will cook meat/chicken in sauces? After all these years, you'd think I would know what to buy, but there are so many choices, and good cookware being expensive, I'm a bit overwhelmed. I don't want to make a mistake. Thanks for your help.
