Braising is a great way to use less expensive cuts of meat to save money, feed a group of people, and turn tough meats into a tender, delicious and nutritiously gelatinous collagen rich meal. Add vegetables. Make gravy or sauce with leftover juice. Wonderful.

"Braising is a cooking technique in which the main ingredient is seared, or browned in fat, and then simmered in liquid on low heat in a covered pot. The best equipment to use would be a crock pot, pressure cooker or Dutch oven."
