Anyone tried doubling this recipe? Braises don't always work well when I scale them.

Thinking of doubling or scaling up recipe. I have found that braises often don't always need to double the liquid. Anyone else tried this? I would think I would use 4-5 lb. of meat and add veggies in that proportion as well? I have a 7qt Staub dutch oven, so I should have adequate room. Is the meat submerged?

You are correct: in scaling up a braise, it isn't necessary to double the amount of liquid. The meat should be submerged, and be generous with the vegetables. They'll add significant flavor.
