Braising is a perfect technique for weeknight meals. It takes only a few minutes to toss ingredients in the pan, cover and braise.
Technically, braising is simmering food in a small amount of liquid in a covered or uncovered pan or casserole. In some ways it's similar to stewing, except that with braising there's generally only enough water, wine or stock to add a little moisture while stewing immerses the ingredients in liquid. Both achieve the same purpose of tenderizing ingredients while adding flavor. The classic braised dish is Coq au Vin: chicken cooked in red wine. More About Braising
