How to braise anything!

Braising, or simmering food slowly in a moderate amount of liquid, is an easy way to create tender, full-flavored meats and vegetables like coq au vin blanc or braised pork with broccolini.

You can apply the technique to different cooking vessels, from a slow cooker to a traditional Dutch oven, because the same basic stages of preparation usually apply: browning ingredients to develop flavor and color; deglazing pan deposits and then heating the cooking liquid; combining the solids and liquid and cooking them gently, usually for several hours.
