5**NOTE: I use a large cast iron Le Creuset pot with a lid because I can brown the meat, then turn around and throw it in the oven. If you don’t have one, brown the meat in a skillet, then put it in some type of oven safe pan for the oven part.

6** PRESSURE COOKER: I have also used a pressure cooker which cuts the cooking time in half! The only variation is that I add an additional cup of chicken or beef broth. Everything else remains the same except cooking time is shorted to 90 minutes.
