need impressive fool proof dinner idea for company using new Dutch Oven

tamhud4 | Jan 10, 200702:46 AM     42

I just got my first Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Ovens (a 5qt round and a 7.5qt oval) I invited my aunt and uncle over for dinner on Friday night and I really wanted to make something nice using my new toy. Any ideas of something I can't mess up too bad that would be impressive for company. They go out to eat a lot more than I do, my aunt enjoys cooking too and I want to kind of show off a bit but I have never used one of these pans before. Also, they are red wine drinkers and I think I would like it to be a beef or lamb dish of some kind. Any ideas? Any good recipes online that you know of?
