Braising Braising

Braising is a method of slow cooking meat, fish and, or vegetables in a small amount of liquid, covered, in the oven or over low heated burner. This is done when you want to cook several things together infusing all the flavors, while tenderizing food. Because it is cooked slowly over a long period of time, you may need to add a little liquid during cooking time.
