Slow-Cooked Provençal Beef Stew Recipe

One of the most useful types of large cooking pots you will ever use in your kitchen is a dutch oven.  This type of cast iron cooking vessel was invented in the Netherlands in the 1700’s, hence the name dutch oven.  If you don’t have a dutch oven yet, click here to learn more about the cast iron dutch oven I use and how you can get it for 50% off retail price.

The popularity of the cast iron dutch oven, also known as a casserole, has lead to many easy recipes now available for the dutch oven to create healthy one-pot meals for you and your family.

Guys, if you feel your other kitchen cookware is more for your wife, you’ll want this one as your own.   The enameled cast iron dutch oven is heavy and manly…just what any guy wants.

These cast iron recipes are easy to make.  Since a cast iron dutch oven is designed for slow cooking, these recipes take a bit of time in the oven, but will be well worth the wait.

Here are some easy cast iron recipes you can make as a stay at home dad in your dutch oven to provide your family with health, delicious and hearty meals.

Where to buy a Dutch Oven?

If you are interested in buying a new dutch oven, we recommend an enameled dutch oven.   This type of dutch oven has the same great  heating and cooking capabilities as a regular cast iron dutch oven, and has the added benefit of a hard enamel coating.  This makes this versatile cooking pot non-stick and easy to clean.
