Braising Recipes for Ribs, Beef, Pork & Lamb. The braise: it's what I turn to most often when I want to make a special cold-weather comfort meal. Taking a little more effort than the roast, the braise's slow-simmered flavours are infinitely satisfying. All you need is a big braising dish, a metal or cast-iron pot, and an afternoon to yourself.
