A cooking technique in which food (both vegetables and meat) is prepared by browning, then cooking slowly in a small amount of liquid, seasonings, and fat in the oven or in a covered pan on the stove top. The long slow cooking process develops flavor and tenderizes foods by gently breaking down their fibers. (Pictured at left is the browning step.)
