Dutch oven cooking lends a special flavor to foods that comes only through cooking using seasoned iron. You can cook almost anything in a Dutch oven that you can cook in a conventional oven. If you are not cooking in the great outdoors, you can still use your Dutch oven in your regular kitchen oven.
Anything you can cook in your oven or crock pot, you can cook in a Dutch oven. Whether you want a meal of chicken and rice, pot roast and potatoes, chili or even pizza, a Dutch oven does a great job! All you need to do is practice and have confidence.
Using a Dutch oven at home is also very popular since the food gets cooked at a constant, all-around temperature. There's nothing better than a wonderful Dutch oven meal served for friends at home.
