The other day I had a great idea to use my dutch oven. You see I have had the dutch oven for about two months now and haven’t even touched it. It has been sitting in the kitchen as if it was a decoration and not something to actually cook with. So I finally got the guts to use it and decided I would make a pot roast.
I have made many pot roasts before but always in a slow cooker. I had never tried to make one before in a dutch oven. So I added all of my ingredients and the roast. It started to cook and the smell was amazing. Now at this point K comes out of the bedroom and into the kitchen. He is sniffing around. You know what this mean…what ya cooking and when can I eat it?
The dutch oven did cook the roast much quicker then I thought it would, but not fast enough. I chopped the potatoes and carrots and added them in. Again K comes in and is sniffing around. I too at this point was on the verge of hunger. So instead of waiting till the roast was completely finished I decided to take it out. I then proceeded to cut it into smaller pieces and toss it back into the pot so the whole dish would cook faster. And it did.
The end dish had a great taste and we both ate two bowls full (Luckily our bowls aren’t too big or too deep).
And that is how The Pot Roast that Turned into Beef Stew…
