Tips  

Expert Tips

No Changes.

For the best flavor and to reduce the amount of liquid during cooking, trim any excess fat from the beef before browning.

Look for beef stew meat that's been pre-trimmed, and cut into 1- to 1 1/2-inch pieces, in the meat department.

For a gyro-type sandwich, spoon this beef onto pita bread, top with sliced onions and tomatoes, and drizzle with the cucumber sauce.
