I have two favorite cooking methods. Braising and Roasting.
When braising you are typically cooking a large, tough cut of meat for an extended period of time partially covered in a flavorful liquid. Think of a pot roast as the most basic example of braising.
Roasting involves using dry heat typically in the oven and enhances flavor through caramelization. I’m a huge fan of using this method with any vegetable. This recipe for roasted fennel and sweet potatoes is an amazing side dish paired with the Pork Chop and Caramelized Apple and Onion Compote. Or try the Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Apples!
