Braising comes from the French word “braiser”. It is a combination of moist and dry heat cooking methods. The dry heat cooking method is searing at a high temperature. Then once it is seared and browned, it is put into a pot and covered with liquid to cook at a low temperature for several hours. The braising liquid can impart flavor and make the tenderloin very tender and delicious.
You can add herbs and spices to the braising liquid to impart new flavors. You may add tarragon, thyme, oregano and more. Additionally, you can also use aromatic spices such as cardamom and a teaspoon of cinnamon to create a mix of spiced flavors.
This braised beef will please the pickiest eater. You can achieve a great depth of flavor and richness with a few ingredients. We suggest you pair it with a luscious and Creamy Avocado & Potato Salad.
