Cook It in your Dutch Oven
150 Foolproof Recipes Tailor-made for your Kitchen's Most Versatile PotBook - 2018
Many home cooks own a Dutch oven, but often these prized pots get relegated to the back of the cabinet, to be pulled out only for making stews. Learn how you can put your Dutch oven to work every day in so many different ways. Make it your go-to for weeknight meals with practical yet fun recipes like Shiitake Mushroom Ramen, Easy Chicken Tacos, and Lamb Meatballs with Herbed Orzo Pilaf. Impressive roasts and braises like Chicken Bouillabaise and Roast Beef Sirloin with Caramelized Carrots and Potatoes go seamlessly from stovetop (the enameled surface is perfect for creating fond without burning) to oven (the cast iron maintains steady heat to ensure food cooks perfectly). We'll even walk you through deep frying at home, step-by-step, so you can make perfect Korean Fried Chicken Wings and pub-style Fish and Chips. Plus, a Dutch oven can turn you into an artisanal bread baker overnight (the humid, closed environment produces loaves sporting an airy interior and shatteringly crisp crust). And a range of appealing desserts, from Pear-Ginger Crisp to Bourbon-Brown Sugar Poached Peaches, benefit from the Dutch oven's high sides and even heating.
