  3. Drain potatoes well and arrange about 1/4 of the slices in an even layer in the prepared dish; sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper, then top with about 1/4 of the onions and of the cheese. Repeat layers, ending with cheese.
  4. Heat beef broth, then slowly pour over and around the potatoes. Dot top with remaining 2 tablespoons butter.
  5. Bake, uncovered, in a 350° oven for 1 1/2 hours or until potatoes are tender when pierced.
