@Soon_to_be_wed:  Dutch ovens are used either on the stove or in the oven – they’re great for making a beef stew!  You need to be home while you cook though, unlike the crockpot, which is the kind that you can plug in and set to slowly cook while you’re away from home. Hope that answers your question!

Here’s a website I love to visit when I need to find recipes (I searched “dutch oven” for you, so that’s included in the link!)

Bread, chicken, pork, lasagna…. there’s tons of other recipes which aren’t on this website, too! But the pretty pictures help a lot. 🙂

Just be careful, a few of the recipes aren’t in dutch ovens, they’re just in Dutch language. ;P

This made me chuckle for immature reasons.

@Soon_to_be_wed:  If it’s Le Creuset or Staub then you can technically call it a French Oven!

My dutch oven is my favourite cooking tool for sure!  There are tons of things you can do with it, similar recipes to a crock pot but they cook faster and always seem to be elss watery and have more flavour.  Its also very forgiving – I’ve only burned something once when my stove was set too high and never really overcooked anything.  Some of my favourites:


Stove top: chili, soups of any kind – simmer on a low heat


in the oven: stews like boeuf bourgingnon, thick irish lamb stew, spicy chicken/turket stew – get it started on the stove top and let it finish up for an hour or two in the oven


and my favourite: braised meat – I use rabbit, chicken, lamb, beef in big thick chunks – brown the meat in oil in the dutch oven, remove the meat, saute onions, carrots and potatoes, add the meat back in and add either white or red wine, stick in the oven for an hour with the lid on, remove the lid, let it brown/evaporate = best meal ever.  You can use stock, tomatoes or switch up the veggies – I cook something in this combo at least once a week and its SO flavourful.

Agree with the post by @bella128: above…

Thumbs Up for Boeuf Bourgingnon- Irish Stew – Chicken Stew (with Dumplings)

I make a Veggie soup in my Dutch oven I got last year.  LOL I am returning the favor this year to my mom. We got her one now.
