Braising Contest Awards 2007: Honorable Mentions Pt. I of III

Braising Contest Awards 2007: Honorable Mentions Pt. I of III

(This contest was totally impossible to judge. We had so many amazing Braises that in addition to our top five places, we've had to create new categories - and prizes! - in order to honor the talent, wit and skill of these amazing Braisons and Braisettes. Each entry gets its own post, recipe included, in the next few weeks. Grand Prize winners announced tomorrow. More after the jump.)
