What’s the Difference Between Braising and Stewing?

In this culinary Q&A, I answer the following question from Jenny M. about the differences between braising and stewing. "What's the difference between Stewing and Braising? Is it simply that braises are done in the oven and stews are done on the stove top? To me it looks like the exact same technique; tough meats cooked low and slow in liquid until they're falling apart tender. What am I missing?"

Show Notes: http://www.stellaculinary.com/CT9 In a previous video, I demonstrated how to make creamy polenta (http://youtu.be/ErOUl8d92oY).
