Similar to pot roasting, braising uses a combination of both moist and dry heat. In many instances, foods are first seared and then cooked slowly at a low temperature with liquid in a closed container.
Another plus is that cuts of meat you would otherwise avoid and which typically cost less because they are harder to work with, can in fact be made into delicious meals through the braising method in a proper braising pan.
When designing your kitchen, you’ve probably come across (or will come across) a conundrum wherein your space allotment doesn’t seem to fit all of your equipment needs. While a professional kitchen designer can help, it also pays to understand what pieces of equipment can serve multiple purposes, cutting out the need for extra accessories and items. Braising pans are such items, and they’re also many times overlooked in restaurants! Braising pans can change the way you operate a kitchen, and are worth a closer look when choosing your restaurant’s equipment.
