Comfort Food

Everyone that visits my blog knows that I love to cook. Cooking from scratch is my favorite thing to do and since I do it all the time I've got to have the proper cooking equipment.

I cook all types of cuisine and I've got the cookware to prove it. From having a wok to cook stir-fries, fried rice. I've got a pasta pot for cooking spaghetti. I've got a big roasting pan that I cook roasts and lasagna in. And I've got a Le Creuset Dutch Oven that I make stews, chicken and dumplings, chicken, and pork chops.
Here is a great Dutch Oven Recipe from Paula Deen of The Food Network:

Paula Deen's Sauerkraut And Ribs:
2 Tbs Vegetable Oil or Olive Oil
1 rack Pork Baby Back Ribs, cut into individual ribs
Salt and Pepper
1 medium Onion, chopped
6 medium, White New Potatoes, quartered
1 lb bag Sauerkraut
1/2 C White Wine (optional, may substitute water or stock)
Parsley sprigs, for garnish

Set Dutch oven over medium-high and heat the vegetable oil.

You can also cook this dish in the oven at 325 to 350 degrees F for the same time.

Season the ribs with salt and pepper. Lay ribs in the oven, meat side down and sear them in a single layer. Transfer them to a platter. Add the onions and saute until softened, scraping up any browned bits from the ribs. Add potatoes. Add ribs back in and cover with sauerkraut. Poor wine over top. Cover the Dutch oven and lower the heat. Simmer the pot on the stove for 2 to 3 hours until the ribs are very tender.

If the dish gets too dry at any point stir in a little chicken broth or water to keep it moist.

Serve garnished with parsley sprigs.
