Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To complete the menu, warm a variety of bakery dinner rolls. Toss baby spinach leaves with sliced strawberries and poppy seed dressing.
  • tip 2
    Transfer any cooled leftovers to airtight food storage containers; refrigerate. Before reheating them in the microwave or on the stovetop, stir in a bit of water for optimum gravy consistency.
  • tip 3
    Look for beef stew seasoning near other sauce and seasoning packets in the grocery store.
