Default Dutch Oven Cooking

Over the holiday weekend, we took a trip over to Mammoth Cave in Kentucky and before leaving I finally ordered a Lodge dutch oven. If you have ever cooked anything in a dutch oven you know, it is hard to beat as I have many fond memories of meals as a kid. It is hard to describe my wife and kids faces as I prepped the pineapple upside down cake. My eight-year-old, of course, had a million questions and assisted in every way he could imagine. When it was done, I flipped it out of the oven, and it was incredible. The next morning my wife said well what else can you make it that thing and I decided on a ranchers breakfast. A rancher's breakfast from what I remembered was sausage and bacon cooked and drained. Then using the grease from the sausage pour in 4-6 cups (depending on oven size) of smashed up tater tots, cover with 6-8 eggs and as much cheese as you like then cover and cook for 20 minutes. It is important to mention that I have always used the method to place eight coals under and 16 coals on top of the lid moving the oven a quarter turn every 10 minutes. The rancher's breakfast came out perfectly.

So what are your favorite recipes?

I like this beef stew recipe. Pretty simple to make changes based on what's looking good at the grocery store.

My father didn’t know how to cook so his version of a Dutch Oven was slightly different

I think I saw a Good Eats where he did Johnny Cakes that looked amazing, might be worth googling. Peter Griffen used to like to Dutch Oven Lois but that's something entirely different.

The base recipe I use is this: https://www.themediterraneandish.com...ks-vegetables/

I make a few changes: omit the potatoes (I have to watch my carbs and since I serve it with rice the potatoes have to go), use only one cinnamon stick, and add 1/2 tsp smoked paprika to the spice mixture.

Potjie. Although I've only made it with the traditional design pot, which is fairly similar to a dutch oven, just a bit different shaped and has legs cast into it.

Kent Rollins has a number of very interesting dutch oven recipes on his site. Nothing I would want to eat every day, but the ones I've tried are definitely crowd pleasers.

Easy to just do short ribs with a few tablespoons of wine and spices/herbs of your choice at 250F. Once soft, take out of dutch oven and run through broiler to get some color. Cook down the juice in the dutch oven with a touch of butter and flour...

I have a friend who does a large amount of his cooking over coals with cast iron. He is part of a group that does camping with tepees. But at his house he does a lot of cooking over coals as well.

That's what I found too, especially at the low temps and long times needed for some things.

That's cool. I don't use the potjie or dutch oven that often because it's hard to cook small for one with them, but I prefer coals when I do use them.

So I decided to make a stew for my family last weekend and everything turned out absolutely amazing. Except for the fact that whenever you’re using a charcoal chimney on concrete you should take a mental note of where that place was instead of finding it with your bare foot. Needless to say a couple third-degree burns mainly 2ndį burns followed quickly after stepping on the hotplate of concrete death the only thing that saved me is my ridiculously callused feet from a decade in military boots. Some people say there’s common sense I say common sense is not always so common.
