Why You Should Braise in Foil

Foil packets make great braising vessels for the grill. We formed this oversize foil bowl to hold the beer-braised potatoes and shrimp (pictured above).

1. Stack 2 large sheets of heavy-duty foil. Place the solid ingredients in the center.

2. Fold up and crimp the edges of the foil to create a bowl shape.

3. Pour in 1 to 1 1/2 inches of liquid, then top with another large sheet of foil and crimp the edges to seal.
