I found a pork recipe I want to use for a large group of people this weekend. It calls for a dutch oven, but I don't have one and I'm not buying one. I'm thinking I can prepare the recipe (browning pork & making the gravy it is cooked in) on the stove top and then transfer everything to a crock pot. I've done this with a pot roast recipe I have and it worked really well. What do you think? It's a really big piece of meat that is going to have to be cut into more manageable roasting pieces.

Here is a link for the recipe if that will help in determining if you think my idea will work.

Thanks in advance.

Have used the Crock a lot as a substitute.

While we do have a dutch oven and do use it, we have really fallen in love with our stoneware from pampered chef - we use two of the big bowls (one for the pot and one for the lid) and put our dutch oven receipies into that... love it!

I think it will work, but it won't be as good.

I am a recent dutch oven convert and I just love the thing. I got mine "free" by using my amazon.com points.

Do you have a covered roaster? Use that in place of dutch oven.
