What is Braising?

Braising is a cooking technique that involves browning the meat before it is cooked in liquid. This process seals in the juices and creates a succulent dish.

Braising is a tried-and-true way to cook meat and vegetables in liquid, as it creates an incredibly savory flavor. However, braising has some drawbacks, such as having to babysit your pot of food on the stovetop or in the oven for hours at a time. The slow cooker or crockpot can help ease this burden by providing constant heat while you go about your day.

The slow cooker or crockpot allows you to braise without any supervision, freeing up your time to do other things while dinner cooks itself!

How To Braise Your Meat In A Slow Cooker and The 5 Best Tips for Successful Results

Slow cooker braising is a cooking technique that is popular in many cuisines including Asian, Mexican, and American. It allows you to cook meat at low temperatures for a long period. The most common mistake when braising meat in a slow cooker is not cooking the meat for long enough.

Slow cookers can be tricky to use and takes some practice before you master the technique. The 5 best tips for successful results are listed below:

1) Brown the meat first: This will add flavor to your dish and make it easier to sear later on if you need to do so.

2) Sear with high heat: This will help seal juices from the browned layer of meat and make sure that they don’t leak out during cooking.

3) Add liquid: A little liquid is added to the slow cooker before cooking so that the meat can cook and release juices.

4) Add spices: Dried herbs and spices like cumin, coriander, and oregano will add more flavor to your dish.

5) Add aromatics: Onion, garlic, carrots, and celery are great additions for adding flavor
