Like the crepe pan, I also really needed to put my new Dutch oven to use and what better way than by making my mother’s classic pot roast?Not having a family recipe, I decided to use this recipe from The Wicked Noodle.
We bought a huge piece of meat. Seriously, look at that thing! I got to browning it, using two forks to help me maneuver the meat in the pan without burning myself.After the meat was a tad browned on all sides, I pulled it out and stuck the onions in to cook for awhile. I also used fresh thyme, which very sadly did not survive our recent Montenegrin holiday. 🙁After the sauce was done, I threw that bad boy back in the pot and cut up my carrots and washed my potatoes.After roasting time, the house smelled gorgeous and Kay was reaaally hungry for dinner.I took the roast out to carve it on our big cutting board. Success!I hope I will get a lot of use out of this pan. I plan on moving it with me wherever I go. This pan is coming to the grave! I’m really happy to finally have a pan that I can transfer from the hob to the oven.
Do you have any favorite Dutch oven recipes?
