Yet Another Cast Iron Topic

Trazom | May 11, 2011 06:13 AM

Hi all,

I do have other pieces of cast iron that are seasoned with various methods but with this current pan, a new pre seasoned 12 inch lodge pan I want to subscribe to the “ Just use it ” method of seasoning .

The pan is pre seasoned and I did one light seasoning in the oven. So really my question is. What foods are best to cook to sort of get the pan started? I know from experience if I take a lightly seasoned pan and use anything acidic or even just a long simmer in liquid it will remove a good bit of seasoning.

So besides bacon, sausages, grilled sandwiches, steaks, burgers, asparagus and other sautéed veggies. What are some good starter foods to help the seasoning along?
