So I get this much coveted cast iron Apple pot (dutch oven?) for my birthday. It was just SO beautiful I HAD to have it! Not that I cook much but you can just imagine ANY dish tasting better in this fantastic pot lol So now I want to cook up something wonderful in it to show my gratitude but I have no idea what to do with it besides store cookies Right now the cravings are leaning towards something cherry but any idea is MUCH appreciated. Thanks ya'll!

You can cook just about anything in a Dutch Oven. By the way that is a beautiful pot--never seen one like that before.
I make chicken dishes, pot roast, pork roast/chops---anything. It's a way to cook low and slow and make any meat so tender and falling apart.

You can sear a roast in that pot on high heat, then chuck it in the oven with some other ingredients and have a lovely pot roast.

Also a good chili or soup pot.

Yep Debsi...that is exactly how I do my pot roast. Sear the roast on high heat and pop that baby in the oven for 3 hours or so on low heat. Infact that is what we had for dinner last night! Excellent!

Hey gal!!!!! How are you??? How's little man???

I love the dutch oven, I just don't see you sittin still long enough to use it! J/K! It really is a very unique pot, and I am envious! What is it? Enamel over cast iron? You can do a lot with a dutch oven. My DH loves when I cook a roast on top of the stove - brown all sides of the roast, throw in some campbells french onion soup, a little water, some dried minced onion and/or garlic, a tiny splash of Dale's and/or worcestershire. Simmer until tender!

Things are great here and I am thinking one rainy Sunday (when we are sittin' still ) I will see what this baby can do. You guessed it, it's enamel over cast iron from Lodge. They sell for 160-170 but this is a second for MUCH MUCH less since it has a bit of a blemish, which I never found lol. They have a factory outlet in South Pittsburg TN that we like to go to. Don't go unless you plan on buying some cast iron. We initally went for a skillet to cook those yummy German pancakes and then I end up with this too.

Thanks everyone for the great ideas and recipes! Mattandme, the recipe book is excellent Thanks again. I am thinkin' not Arbys but seared pot roast!

This is one of my favorite Dutch over recipes, by the Barefoot Contessa herself:

I'll second the recommendation for Ina's Beef Bourguignon. It is very good and very, very rich.
