usually when cooking a bunch liquid comes out of the meat and it stews the meat which i hate but i feel like if i pour out the liquid then it becomes really dry? what should i do?
I think I know what you mean. I used to make smothered steak pretty often and I would put some but not much oil in for the browning. Sometimes the meat just rendered more liquid than others and there have been a couple of times that I spooned some off.
How about spooning some of the liquid off, if it is making it hard to brown the meat and then spoon it back on to reduce, once the meat is browned.
