How often do I turn meat when braising?
One or three times is all you need.
Definately not 2 though.
Once for me. More only if I have a look and the not-submerged part looks like it's drying.
Why not? Let's say your total braising time is 4 hours, it would make sense to turn once after 1 hour and once more after 3 hours. No? Anyway I don't usually count that kind of things. Just look, determine if it needs turning, and turn if it does.
Cuz he said 1 or 3 /img/vbsmilies/smilies/smile.gif
Well I suppose two is ok.
How many sides does it have? Turn till the whole thing is uniformly brown.
It has either two sides or many sides. But most times the other sides don't count. I mean, if it's round the liquid still comes up half way.
"First shalt thou take out the holy roast of Antioch and cooketh it. Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less when turning the holy roast of Antioch. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three in turns has been reached, being the third number, then servest thou thy Holy roast of Antioch to thy friends or to thouest foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."
I'm couldn't resist this when I saw the post by @kuan and then the others, it just popped in my mind.....Scary thing is I haven't yet had my Friday evening cocktail(s). =)
That is thigh slapping funny!
Turn once during quarter moon, twice for half moon, thrice during full moon,
and never turn during either solar nor lunar eclipse.
I turn a slab-o-meat like a brisket once about mid way, then baste as need to keep from
drying out. On the other hand (usually my left), there are times when that slight
"crust" on top is appealing.
Favorite sentence of the week:
"Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three." /img/vbsmilies/smilies/lol.gif
I turn the meat once....
Twice if the non-submerged part starts to dry out.
I think everyone here drank too much braising liquid /img/vbsmilies/smilies/drinkbeer.gif

No such thing...
