I already have leads for chili, beef stews, soup and baked beans. Anything else that rocks?

          This has been asked and answered many times - you'll find hours of reading if you search this board. There is no advantage in using a DO for soup or any stews that do not require long, slow cooking (e.g. seafood). DOs are heavy and must be handled carefully. If you have another large pot, use that for the soups and other shorter-cooking dishes. DOs really shine in roasting and braising meats and poultry. If you have a naked cast iron DO, you may not like the iron taste that comes through if you use acidic ingredients like wine, tomato, or vinegar. On the other hand, after repeated use, naked iron absorbs flavor from herbs and spices that it then contributes to the meats as they cook. I inherited the piece my mother used for decades for pot roast - it is permeated with the scent of clove, bay leaf, and onion. I've made pot roast in my enameled cast iron too - it's not as good.

                I didn't like it, it wasn't that fun to eat. I don't think layering the enchiladas like this is that fun.

              I adapted this recipe from Cooks. Com.

              1 can tomato soup
              1 c water
              1/2 c vinegar
              1 c catsup
              2 onions diced
              3 cloves garlic, minced
              1 tsp. salt
              1/2 t. Worcestershire sauce
              5-6 drops hot sauce
              2 T honey
              12 country style boneless pork ribs

              Combine all but the ribs in a large saucepan. Bring to boil and boil 5 minutes.

              Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Add ribs to dutch oven and brush with sauce. Bake 1 hr. Pour off grease. Brush with more sauce. Bake another half hour. Pour off grease. Add rest of sauce and return to oven for 10 min.

              Good with mashed potatoes.
