Indolent means lazy, slow or averse to activity. I was reading an article where I read this particular usage. The sentence is
Bicol Express is another classic, pork grown indolent in coconut milk and needled by chiles.
What does grown indolent mean here? My interpretation is that pork is grown slowly in coconut milk. Then another question is why the writer has used grown instead of cooked, marinated any other word? Does grown indolent has any specific meaning?
Some other sentences mentioning the same words :
He has grown indolent because, from this perspective, imagination seems pointless; any pain that is to be suffered and any defense against that pain lie within the actual self.
Her brain had not grown indolent, whatever her outward demeanor.
