Dutch Oven-First Use


Remember I got Jim an 8 qt. Lodge Dutch Oven for Father’s Day.  Yesterday he used it for the first time.  Teddy and Birdie came up for the weekend and stayed in a cabin nearby.  Friday Teddy gave Jim some advice on cleaning and using the Dutch oven for the first time.

Jim washed the oven in hot water, wiped it out dry and coated the whole thing with lard.  Then he heated it up on the stove and then let it cool.  Jim marinated a pork butt roast in some soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and Cajun seasoning for a couple of hours.



After searing all the sides of the roast Jim added more of the marinate mix  and laid it on a bed of celery, onions and carrots.  Then he put the oven on top of a wood fire. 


Teddy “supervised” and said Jim was doing just fine.



The roast came out very good…tender, juicy and carved very easily.CIMG7928             CIMG7927

We then sat around the fire and even stayed out when it began to sprinkle.


We had a wonderful afternoon, enjoying friends, food and a few libations.

Remember, you are loved.
