    2. Melt half the butter in a large pan or wok and fry the ground beef over high heat until browned. Use a slotted spoon to remove the beef and set aside, leaving the fat and juices in the pan.   
    3. Add the remaining butter to the pan and add the onion, celery, and carrot. Fry over moderate heat until the vegetables soften and start to caramelize.
