Expert Tips

Braising is a cooking technique that calls for browning meat or vegetables, then tightly covering the pan and slowly cooking the food in a small amount of liquid over low heat. Braising can be done in the oven as well as on the stovetop. The tight-fitting lid keeps the cooking liquid from evaporating. Tough cuts of meat benefit from braising because the slow simmering tenderizes them.

A tossed green salad is a good accompaniment for this meat-and-potatoes meal. To complete the menu, add freshly baked Pillsbury Refrigerated Reduced Fat Crescent Dinner Rolls.
