Do you caramelize or brown ?

emglow101 | Feb 14, 2012 08:39 PM

Tonight I had made a simple marinade wih two cloves a garlic sliced thin with a little sea salt, olive oil, fresh bay laurel from my tree and a little rosemary. Combine ingredients and let sit. Spoon over lamb shoulder chop. Marinate one hour. Wipe off marinade. Place chop in pan, turn often. You can hear the sound of sizzle cooked over medium high heat in a cast iron pan . Seven minutes looks brown and beautiful. Not caramelized. Do you brown or caramelized ? Is this a word trend ? Is there a difference ?

Vegetables, meat, starch, Which is wich ? Cramalize onions brown the meat. Or otherwise?
