Basically, it's a French term for a rich, very hearty bean stew.  Traditionally, they're made with white beans and meat, but I make a vegetarian version that's basically beans, tomatoes and various vegetables stewed together.  Very nice with fresh bread when the weather gets cold.   

Mmm, that sounds really good. I'm going to try that, thankyou.
And yes I like stir fry- it was the first thing my dad ever taught me to cook!

Yes, thankyou! There was a crockpot in there which I had no clue about. Did you magically make it appear? Lol. I think it must be my mother-in-law's.

Sorry, I didn't. While my family has one, I don't really care to use them...I much prefer the stove top. My mom, on the other hand, really enjoys using the thing.

I'm with you on that one.  I'd much rather use my grandmother's dutch oven than a crockpot any day.  I think there are only two things I use it for - an orange spiced chicken recipe and pulled pork.  For the pulled pork alone, it's worth owning, however.

We've got either two or three BIG dutch ovens here but they've all "been put up".  Undecided

Gonna share the pulled pork recipe?  Grin

Here ya go!  I can't remember where I found this one, but it's a nice, easy way to make what we call BBQ here in North Carolina (which means no tomato-based sauce comes within 100 yards of the meat, a crime which is punishable by death in some areas).   Wink


Carolina BBQ Pork (aka Pulled Pork)

2 onions, sliced thick
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoons salt   
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1(4 to 6 pound) boneless pork roast or loin
3/4 cup cider vinegar
4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 ½ teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
1 ½  teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
Hamburger buns
Coleslaw, optional

Place onions in crock pot. Combine brown sugar, paprika, salt and pepper; rub over roast. Place roast over onion.
Combine vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, red pepper flakes, sugar, mustard, and garlic salt; stir to mix well. Drizzle about 1/3 of vinegar mixture over roast; cover and refrigerate remaining vinegar sauce.
Cook on Low for 10 to 12 hours or high for 4 to 6. Drizzle about 1/3 reserved vinegar over roast during last half hour of cooking.
When done, remove meat and onions and allow to drain. Chop the onions.
To pull the pork, use a fork or tongs to hold the pork roast and drag another fork across the meat to break it apart. 
Serve on buns, adding coleslaw or additional vinegar sauce if desired.

I'd wanted one for years - like ten or so. One afternoon two years ago, we were at Wal-Mart, and voila, there were a ton of Rival's on an endcap for $10. One came home with me. Whoot! It's small - but it's big enough to cook a 3# chicken in. Cheesy

Don't get me wrong because I do enjoy eating the stews and such that's been cooked in one but they're really not my favourite appliance.

That would be the coffee maker.  Grin Cheesy

I do understand. My crockpot has just made my life saner in a lot of ways is all. LOL

Here is a challenge for you all!
What recipes can you recommend when you have a broken oven? My oven has been broken for a week now, and although it is very close to being fixed (I hope), I am really struggling with what to cook! There is only so much pasta you can eat, lol. So...any ideas? My cupboards are mostly stoked with pulses, grains, pastas, and my fridge is full of vegetables (I'm a vegetarian). Oh and cheese. We seem to eat a lot of cheese in this house. Can anybody help me?

I have a ton of veggie friendly dishes I do on top of the stove or in a crockpot.  These are some ideas that avoid pasta.  Some are meals in themselves and some need a salad and/or bread to round things out.  Please let me know if you would like a recipe for any of these:  vegetarian chili; black bean soup; lentils with onion, garlic, and tomatoes; potato-onion soup with wild rice; sauteed onions, garlic and tomatoes with couscous; red beans and rice (sans traditional ham-hock, cooked in veggie broth); and hoppin' John.

I have a whole kitchen pantheon.  Cheesy

I don't pay for hydro but I do for gas, so my favourite counter top cookers are my crockpot, electric roaster, rice-cooker, deep-fryer, water-pot, and of course my electric griddle.

The only thing I absolutely have to use my oven for is bread and baking, and I can make a mean apple pie in an electric sandwich maker (individual size pies, of course).  I did have a bread machine but I hated it and traded it to my sister for a shell maker, which she then borrowed back.

Vegetarian chili sounds good! And the one with the lentils, too. Thank-you!
