To make sure that ingredients cook evenly and don't stick, preheat pans or skillets before adding the vegetables or meat. (And make sure they're ovenproof.)
RUB WITH OIL
Rub meat or toss vegetables with a little oil before putting them in a very hot oven. This prevents them from browning too quickly.
USE PRIME BEEF
Any meat that benefits from quick cooking does well in a very hot oven (many steakhouses cook beef at 1000 degrees and above.) A little bit of sugar helps beef brown.
Sturdy green vegetables, like asparagus and snap peas, caramelize in a very hot oven, becoming sweet and brown on the outside while staying fresh and crisp within.
