comment Stewing beef - how long is too long?
Based on this recommendation, I tried using less liquid, and turning the heat up a little higher than I have been. The result was spectacular. First of all, there was plenty of liquid to soften up the mean, but more importantly, the liquid cooked down better, and I had a thicker, more intense sauce after the braising.

if the pot is covered, don't the vapors above the liquid break down the collagen? as per seriouseats.com/2013/09/…

comment How to prepare mutton so it's not tough?
Maybe Mutton is like cooking squirrel? to cook squirrel, you put the squirrel in a pot of boiling water along with a baseball-size rock. when the rock is tender, the squirrel is ready
