1⁄4 cup beef broth
2 tbsp. apple juice or white wine
1⁄3 cup roasted Oregon hazelnuts

1 lb. boneless American lamb sirloin steaks, cut 3⁄4-in. thick
1⁄4 tsp. salt
1⁄4 tsp. ground black pepper
1 tbsp. fresh snipped parsley
Whole Oregon hazelnuts (optional)

Steps

To keep staff motivated, we locked them in a room together. As part of a midsemester training session, we formed work groups and sent them to a local Escape Room to see which team could play the game together most effectively and escape first. Not only was this training a great team-building experience, but it supported a local new business and gave our staff a memorable experience.
