What's Cooking?: Braising

 

Braising is a cooking technique that can transform a mundane piece of meat into a dish that will satisfy the most discriminating palate.  It is similar to stewing in that it uses relatively low temperatures while simmering.  However, braising uses less liquid resulting in a rich concentrated sauce.  It also uses large pieces of meat.  More important, the meat is first seared.  This essential step ensures the meat will retain its juices, keeping it succulent and moist.
