I love braising things when it’s cold out, and one of my favorite cookbooks is Braises and Stews: Everyday Slow-Cooked Recipes by Tori Ritchie. Paco stumbled upon it randomly when the author was having a book-signing at Williams-Sonoma in San Francisco, and gave it to me as a gift. I have tried many of her recipes, and all of them have been delicious.
View the entire recipe on Epicurean.com. The results always taste perfect to me, so I have never made any adjustments to the recipe. Last night I used frozen edamame (pictured), but I usually use lima beans. I prefer the lima beans.
