These are five of our favorite Dutch Oven recipes. This post is not sponsored by a Dutch Oven manufacturer. Although, if you’re wondering what my current favorite dutch oven is the Classic Dutch Oven from Milo Kitchen. You can read my full Milo Dutch oven review here.
Here’s 5 classic Dutch Oven Recipes – my favorites! – that are tried and true for cooking today.
A Grandma’s Old Fashioned Dutch Oven Beef Stew
A classic beef stew is arguably the world’s most popular Dutch-oven recipe in general. This easy to make recipe by Carla from Adventures of a Nurse is perfectly simple and delicious.
Carla says: “When I say this is the best beef stew recipe to date, I mean it. You cook the stew for two hours in a cast iron dutch oven, and as it cooks slowly, it totally tenderizes the meat.“
Fisherman’s-Style Seafood Stew
This recipe by Chef Fabio Trabocchi of Casa Luca in Washington, DC, is a rich hearty meal that warm and nourish your loved ones this winter. Our family loves it!
Chef Trabocchi says: “…the key to this brodetto-inspired recipe is to cook to fish and shellfish in stages. The crusty ciabatta toasts make this Fisherman’s-Style Seafood Stew warming winter meal.”
Dutch Oven Pot Roast with Carrots and Potatoes
Rachel from Feast and Farm brings us this wonderfully delicious recipe that is perfect for cold, winter weekends! My youngest daughter loves to cook this with me and we make a day of it!
Rachel says: “Dutch oven pot roast with carrots and potatoes gets juicy and fork tender right from the oven. If you have time to skip the slow cooker, it’s worth it for a melt in your mouth meal you’ll be happy to serve again and again.“
Braised Short Ribs
Short ribs are one of the all-time favorite dishes around the Kitchen Authority kitchens. We’ve made them hundreds of different ways and we still get excited by new variations. This recipe is super delicious and is perfect for a family dinner.
Pioneer Woman says: “Beef short ribs are like the most flavorful, delectable, tender, soft pot roast you can possibly imagine—but the meat is on a handy stick for your eating convenience. And really, if you make ’em right, the stick is only incidental—the meat falls off the bone if you so much as breathe on it. Oh, is it ever a treat.“
30 Minute Spicy Ancho Turkey Chili
This recipe from Lindsay of Pinch of Yum is a perfect variation on traditional chili that is great for an Autumn family meal. It’s so quick to make and so delicious we’ve had it many times and love it! It’s definitely one of our favorite Dutch Oven recipes.
Lindsay says: “So here’s the deal: I’m obsessed with this chili. It’s hearty, zippy, and feel-good with Tex-Mex toppings that make my head spin in the best possible chili-loving way.“
Dutch Oven Whole Roast Chicken
This delicious whole roast chicken recipe comes from Elizabeth at Bowl of Delicious. Her motto is “Real Food for Busy People” and this is a perfect example of that credo. Enjoy!
Elizabeth says: “This easy Whole Roast Chicken Recipe is cooked to crispy-skin perfection in a Dutch Oven with Lemon, Garlic, and Rosemary Butter slathered on every bite! Add potatoes to the bottom of the pan and you’ve got yourself a complete, one-pot meal.“
For some the idea of “vegetarian chili” is sacriligious. This recipe, from Sonja and Alex of a couple cooks, is the perfect solution for meat loving traditionalists. It’s SO delicious they can’t say no!
Sonja and Alex say: “This best vegetarian chili is easy and healthy, leaves meat lovers begging for the recipe, and wins awards at chili cook-offs. How’s that for impressive?“
