Items needed for this recipe:
Large skillet: I use this skillet for just about anything I cook on my stove top. It is sturdy, easy to clean and nonstick so your food comes out nicely every time.
ChopStir: This might be my absolute favorite kitchen tool. It is perfect for browning meat because it breaks it up into little pieces, helps your meat cook evenly and can be washed in the dishwasher.
Wooden spoons: I love the look and functionality of these wooden spoons. I keep mine right next to my stove top for easy access whenever I’m making anything that requires some stirring or mixing.
