How do you Romertopf?

I purchased one years ago and my initial forays were not too successful.

I had a huge bone from a pic-nic shoulder. It was too big for my soup pot so I fetched down the clay pot. I soaked red beans over nights, rinsed and drained them. Added some diced yellow onion and water. And let it cook for 3 hours, turning (did I say massive) bone midway.

Wow. This was much better than cooking it in a soup pot. The flavors intensified, the meat on the bone fell off yet crisped into tasty, crunchy bits. Added a touch of salt and Pirates Bite (not as hot they they indicate, but very delicious) and it was a wonderful meal on a chilly night!

So what do you cook in your clay pot? Recipes wanted!
