Reserving broth in skillet, transfer vegetables and beef to oven-safe platter; keep warm. Simmer broth; add spinach. Cook and toss with tongs 3 to 4 minutes.
To serve, ladle broth in bowls; reserve some to drizzle over meat and vegetables. Divide beef and vegetables among plates. Serve with mustard sauce. Makes 4 servings.

Simply bring broth, carrots, onion, and potatoes to boiling; reduce heat and simmer, covered, 15 minutes or until just tender. Season salmon with salt and pepper; add to vegetables and simmer, covered, for 5 to 8 minutes or until just cooked through. Continue with step 4. Once spinach has been added to platter, stir 1 tablespoon of lemon juice into the simmering broth; spoon some over each portion of salmon and vegetables. Serve with mustard sauce and lemon wedges.
