  1. 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  2. 1 tablespoon safflower or corn oil
  3. 3 pounds carrots, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  4. 1/2 cup milk

  6. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  7. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  1. In a large heavy skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in the oil over high heat. Add the carrots and toss to coat evenly. Cook, stirring frequently, until they begin to char and blacken around the edges, 20 to 25 minutes.
