Heat dutch oven over medium-high heat, add olive oil and brown the meat in batches, adding some salt and pepper as you go. You are going for a nice brown sear – to do this, don’t overcrowd the meat or constantly stir it around. Spread the pieces out and let them sit undisturbed for a couple minutes before flipping them. This searing step adds a wonderful flavor, so try not to skimp! Remove the pieces from the pot once they are finished.
