What to cook in my new enamelware dutch oven?

VAfoodie Nov 9, 2008 12:09 PM

With a gift card and a going out of business sale at Linens N ThingsI picked up a 5 qt. Rachel Ray dutch oven for a cash outlay of $14. Let's start a list of must cooks!

    osso buco but if you have an aversion to veal you can use beef shanks or pork shanks

    Good old fashioned pot roast using a lager and beef stock as your braising liquid.

            Good old fashion beef stew with baking soda biscuits and LOTS of butter.

                  I second the short ribs - my hands-down favorite thing to cook in my enameled dutch oven. Thanks to Chef Chicklet and JFood for hooking me up with an awesome recipe for red wine braised short ribs - they were amazing served over polenta. Here's a link to the recipe:

                    Ditto - maybe something with a little rosemary and garlic to give it a life.
