definitely brown it. when i add meat to soup, i prefer to cook it beforehand, make sure it's good and browned, and i generally don't add it until very late in the game. of course, that's assuming it's something like ground meat (like this case), chicken breast, or something else tender. tough stew meats are always browned and cooked for a long time.
No announcement yet.
