German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

an- (on, at) +‎ braten (to pan-fry)

Verb[edit]

anbraten (strong, third-person singular simple present brät an, past tense briet an, past participle angebraten, auxiliary haben)

  1. to pan-fry quickly at great heat

Usage notes[edit]

  • The word refers especially to things that are fried slightly before being cooked or baked (as in a stew). With small strips of food (as in a stir-fry), however, anbraten may simply mean “fry quickly”.
