How to Make a Thicker Sauce
Prepare recipe as directed. Remove cooked meat from pan. Strain sauce; place vegetables in bowl. Return sauce to pan. Cover meat and vegetables to keep warm. Mix 1 Tbsp. each cornstarch and water. Bring sauce to boil; stir in cornstarch mixture. Cook and stir 1 min. or until thickened. Serve with meat and vegetables.
Recipe can be made ahead of time. Prepare as directed, but do not top with cheese or remaining parsley. Cool, then cover with foil and refrigerate up to 24 hours. When ready to serve, bake, covered, in 350ºF-oven 30 min. or until heated through. Sprinkle with cheese and remaining parsley. Serve with polenta.
If you don't have an ovenproof Dutch oven, you can bake the meat in a 6-qt. casserole instead.
