There is also confit.I don't call this frying, just sautéing. And I don't use water, I use stock or wine or cream or a combo of them all. I don't know what it is technically referred to.
Hijacked by whom?
 There are cases where this would be true, but also not.  I remember one time a guy cooked for me and he really did a very fine job, setting the mood, the candles, he made fresh linguine a vongole and I came in during the process.  I of course held my tongue but I so so so much wanted to stop him from overcooking the poor clams who were first steamed, then removed from the shell, chopped and put back into the sauce to continue overcooking while the pasta turned to mush....

@jake t buds I HAVE to make that apricot brandy glaze!!
I use it for marinades too and I roast potatoes or Brussels sprouts with it. Spinach salad with strawberries and balsamic. Sometimes I add it to onions as they caramlize.

Make a syrup with balsamic and sugar, reduce until it's a nice syrupy consistency and then drizzle over ice cream or cheesecake.
