Red Wine-Braised Pork! Braising comes from the French word “braiser”. It is a combination of moist and dry heat cooking methods. The dry heat cooking method is when you sear at a high temperature. Then once it is seared and browned, it is put in a pot and cover it with liquid to cook at a low temp for several hours. The braising liquid can impart flavor and make the pork roast very tender and delicious. The key to flavorful braised pork is a low heat setting over a long period.
