1 tb Vegetable oil
1 lb 6 oz lean boneless lamb, cut into 1 1/2" squares 1/2" thick (or boneless chuck)
1 md Onion, chopped
3 c Low sodium chicken broth

6 1 oz sliced Italian bread (optional)


1. In a large heavy saucepan, heat 1/2 of the oil. Add 1/2 of the lamb or beef and cook until well browned on one side, 5-7 min. Stir and cook 1 minute longer; remove meat and set aside. Add the remaining oil the lamb (or beef) and the chopped onion to the pan and cook until browned, about 8-10 min. Return the first batch of meat to the pan.
