Your Best Dutch Oven Recipes

glacier206 | Oct 4, 2009 11:00 AM

My mom asked for a small dutch oven for Christmas, so I got her a nice 4-quart model. I thought it would be nice to also give her a hand-written recipe along with whatever pantry ingredients she would need to make a nice meal. I have three challenges:

1) My mom lives alone, so it can't be anything very difficult, or else she'll say that "it's too much work for just one person."
2) Nothing too fancy, meaning no expensive cuts of meat or very advanced cooking techniques. Her skill level is intermediate at best.
3) Leftovers should reheat well.

Basically, just some good homey dutch-oven cooking. I'm thinking soups, chili, stew, etc, but I'm open to all your ideas.

Thanks in advance!
