  1. Run to your library and take out Molly Steven's "All About Braising" and pick any recipe in the book that fits your tastes and budget. I am particularly fond of her lamb shank and duck ragu recipes.

      I second this recommendation. But if you want to do short ribs, Suzanne Goin's (from the Lucques menu) are better than any other I've tried.

      Also, root vegetables. They taste way better in a LC dutch oven than any other vessel. It's a fact. ;)

    2. I christened mine with julia's boeuf bourguignonne.

        Tim is spot on - I made Tillamook's Mac and 5 Cheese's with king crab leg meat.

      2. Chili, short ribs, bolognese, brisket just to name a few.
