Generally, when a recipe says to "brown", it refers to cooking quickly in a hot pan, on the grill or under a broiler until all sides turn golden or brown in color. The purpose is to seal in the juices and add flavor.
To produce a brown surface on a food by use of relatively high heat for a brief period of time, giving the food an appetizing color and a richer flavor, keeping the interior moist by sealing in the natural juices.
To fry food (usually meat) quickly so the outside is cooked and has changed color. When meat is cooked, the outside reaches a higher temperature than the inside, triggering this browning reaction and creating the strongest flavors on the surface. This is sometimes referred to as the Maiilard reaction.
To cook food quickly over high heat until the surface turns brown. This method allows the juices to stay sealed in and is usually done in a broiler or on a stove top. Chop To cut food into pieces ranging from small (finely chopped) to large (coarsely chopped). See Hash.

Black hairs are general throughout the body coat, limbs, mane and tail, but brown hairs are present on the muzzle, the eyelids and often on the flanks. The descriptions "bay or brown" and "brown or black" are acceptable for horses which may be difficult to describe precisely.
The entire coat of the horse will vary from a brown, with areas of tan on the shoulders, head, and flanks, to a dark brown with tan areas seen in the flanks and/or muzzle. The mane, tail, and lower portion of the legs are usually black; however, white markings may be present.
Describes colour of dry leaf. Some tippy Assam teas during the Second flush have a brown leaf which is quite valuable. Very tippy teas never have a really black leaf appearance. The reason for this is the hair growth down to the shoot. The second leaf may have a quantity of hair insufficient to produce a golden appearance known as tip but sufficient to discolour the leaf to that of a brownish appearance. Also during rolling some hair may be rubbed off the bud and deposited on the coarser leaf. During firing this hair is affixed to the leaf and results in a brownish colour effect.
