Newbie braising question

eps1977 | Jul 1, 2010 09:01 PM

Hey all,

Just got the Le Creuset round 5.5 qt. dutch oven. Tried to braise a roast at 300 degrees and it was very hot inside the DO, but the braising liquid never simmered. No condensation anywhere, very dry. Tucked a piece of parchment paper in there with the same negative result. No condensation - which I think was the reason for my somewhat tasty but definitely dry roast. As a test the next day, just put water in the dutch oven and set the oven to 350. Still nothing. Any suggestions? Thanks.
