Discover what the term 'braising' means when it comes to cooking meat for a casserole or stew, and how it improves the finished result of the dish.

Braising involves cooking a piece or pieces of meat at a low-to-moderate temperature in a covered cast-iron or earthenware casserole for a long time in just enough liquid to ensure a succulent result.

The meat may or may not be floured and sealed in hot oil before cooking. Vegetables and other ingredients are usually added to add flavour and aroma.
