For meat that quite literally falls apart under your fork and melts in your mouth, there's no better cooking method than braising. But meaty cuts of beef, lamb, and pork don't get all the braising love — we can also make fantastic, flavorful braises with fish, chicken, and vegetables all by themselves.
What is a braise, exactly? How is it different from a roast or a soup? That's the topic of today's lesson, and by the end of it, you'll be more than ready to try one for yourself.
