I got a lot of grief for buying a stack of Le Creuset dutch ovens
and admitting that I don't Cook with them... But today, I peeled a
label off, and lit a flame under my newest Le Creuset dutch oven!
Some said it would Never happen...
That Janet would actually use one of her beloved dutch ovens...
And, while it's still true that I consider them beautiful Art that should be displayed...
I bought a 7.25 quart red yesterday that I promised to use!
And, today's the day I stick to my word and Use it!
For a Sunday pot roast dinner no less!
I'm going in for the Flip now!
Lookin' good, huh?!
Oh, no! Drat those people who bullied me into using my Le Creuset! What
if I've ruined it, and my beautiful Dutch oven never comes clean again?
Looks like a little Deglazing with beef stock is all it needed. Whew, that was close!
Okay, here's where Le Creuset Magic happens!
Into the Oven for three hours at 275 degrees
And while that happens I'll prepare the only side
worthy of a Le Creuset pot roast... Mashed potatoes!
Sunday dinner is served!
This is a Fantastic pot roast! I may never
use my Slow cooker for pot roast again!
By the way... My dutch oven cleaned up like a
dream, and I'm very happy to have broken it in!
But I'm still not giving up my rim protectors... And, no one can make me!
