Say you've just finished flipping through a cookbook and you've decided it's officially time to try braising. How have you never braised anything in your life? More importantly, what does one braise? And for how long? This is not the time to wing it. This is when you call on experts -- like the folks behind the counter at Pat's Meat Market, who sell just about every cut of meat you could ever need, and can tell you how to cook it, too. Check their freezer for offal and rarer cuts (call ahead to check availability), consult the shelves for sauces and marinades, and gosh, try that sausage.
