We use a mixture of meats....beef, pork and veal.....wonder how a Lamb meatloaf would be?....anyway, other key ingredeints include oatmeal soaked in red wine and the tomato paste.

A fun variation is to put whole boiled eggs in the loaf and have them in your slices.

We make a big batch and freeze a couple.

Cook the partridge in it of course!

Seriously, those things are great for stews. Shove in virtually any combination of meat and veggies with some kind of (alcoholic) liquid, some seasoning and then simmer for an hour or three. Lovely with dumplings on top, too!

Or a large piece of roast meat. Or that recipe for no-knead bread.

Oatmeal in meat loaf? Hmm... sounds good, I'll have to try that.

One time, in France, I actually saw a bunch of partridges in a pear tree. What were they doing? Eating the pears!

Hey Dusty- I cook beans and stews in my dutch oven. And pot roasts. I bet you could cook meatloaf in it too, come to think of it.

But in your oven?

I'm certain that it was given to me to use in my oven.

here's what it looks like.

Hi Dusty,

Yup, that's a dutch oven and yes, you use it in the oven. Think of it as a primitive slow cooker. You can also use it on a campfire - which is what it was originally designed for (open fire cooking, that is). Either way, it cooks slowly and wonderfully.

Try it, you'll like it!

Indeed I do use it in the oven for those things. Once the oven's less than 300 degrees. With the nice heavy lid, I've never even had to add water to most things unless I didn't put enough in to begin with. I put the pot in and put the door on and leave it for several hours.

You could put a pork shoulder in and make pulled pork too...If you pot's big enough.

Dusty,

I use similar pots in the oven on a regular basis. The last great meal to come from the pot (and the oven) is a variation on pork and beans; call it 'bambi and beans'. We made a venison sausage this year that tastes great, and it went into the pot with a couple onions, a pound of pinto beans, a can of stewed tomatoes, a bunch of garlic and other seasonings. The day after cooking pizza, I put it in the oven in early evening, and forgot about it till the next morning, so it was in the oven for maybe 12 or 14 hours? Came out great. Went into a 350 F degree oven, and came out of a 250 F degree oven. They are magic pots..

My first meal to come from the oven on a curing fire was a pulled pork dish. Again the pot stayed in the oven over night and turned a grizzly old pork shoulder into delicious sandwich meat... uhm tasty!

PhotoPlog - Cooking

The pot helps use the retained heat from the oven. We will cook up pizza's, and they are great, but now the oven is hot --- what are you going to cook next? The pot opens the door on a wide range of good food! and allows you to use the heat you put into the oven. First pizza, then calzone to use the left over pizza stuff, then bread, any roasting (you can use the pot for this also) then cookies, and then the pot... just follow the heat curve right on down with the appropriate cooking..

Sounds like you've got it all worked out. We try to cook something else after pizzas, seems like such a waste of usable heat if you don't, trouble is the pizza is so filling we're usually not thinking about more food. I think the secret is in the planning.
