In search of good casserole recipes

I've just become the proud owner of a brand new Le Creuset casserole I've never had one before so I'm on the lookout for scrummy things to do with it. Any good ideas?

Re: In search of good casserole recipes

My mother used to make a gorgeous casserole with pheasant and caramelised apples. Mind you, I haven't seen pheasant over here so not very helpful! What about slow cooked venison with selected favourite vegetables - I have at least seen that in the shops here.

BTW, that's your basic casserole recipe / method, you can swap the fluffy bunny with any other meat (but add a bit of tomato paste if you are using white meat)... enjoy

Manor foodstores stock pheasant, quail, pigeon and partridge in our area. I've also seen pheasant in Globus. I think a lot of it comes from France. If you can't find some pheasant then guinea fowl makes a great casserole.

Re: In search of good casserole recipes

Rather than following a recipe it's a good idea to know the principle of some basic dishes.

With patience, you can work wonders with:

The trinity of onions, carrots and celery
Some meat
Some bacon (if using say chicken, rabbit, or pork)
A herb to suit the meat

Even better with a stock to match the meat and some kind of alcohol.

The most important point is to make sure the meat is properly caramelized before adding stewing liquid (though not all dishes require this by all means).

Be patient . . . start it in the morning and have it in the evening.

Let it thicken naturally by selectively allowing the liquid to reduce.

Of course, there are many fantastic recipes, classic and modern . . . but why not learn a basic recipe and then be creative?

My favourites are:

Coq au vin (made with a proper cockerel)
Irish stew
Lancashire hotpot
Boeuf Bourguignon
Some kind of game stew
Pork in cider

When I get home I'll post with some proper recipes.

Re: In search of good casserole recipes

You can make a lovely Moroccan tagine too - similar theme to Gastro Gnomes post above, but throw in some cumin, honey, and dried fruits (prunes, sultanas) with your meat and veg, and cook for at least 1 hour, preferably nearer two....

YUM!!

Re: In search of good casserole recipes

I'm not sure that this blogger as made it entirely correctly, judging from their photos, but here's the Gavroche's Coq a la Biere recipe:

http://eat-me-drink-me.blogspot.com/...q-la-bire.html

Another beer recipe, this time a Belgian classic, beef carbonade:

http://beeradvocate.com/cookbook/recipe/67

Here's a good recipe for Lancashire Hotpot:

For a fanatical approach to Coq au Vin, see Jeffrey Steingarten's recipe:

Re: In search of good casserole recipes

I think you're right about the recipe... it's better to know the principles. Although, if you've not made casseroles for a long time, or ever, sometimes following a well constructed recipe helps you get the concept down....


We made some preserved lemons a month ago, and made a great tagine with chicken, lemons, olives and cumin, turmeric, corriander, pepper... although we actually bought a tagine - my husband really wanted one, and I like it very much.

Re: In search of good casserole recipes

It's not a casserole recipe, but remember you can also use a casserole dish for baking bread.

With a kneaded loaf it just helps you maintain a more moist atmosphere (i.e. you use it like a cloche).

For 'no knead' bread recipe (see link on the Marmite thread) it's essential. You pour the super sloppy dough into a pre-heated casserole dish, lo and behold, 40 minutes later out comes a nice loaf.

Re: In search of good casserole recipes

What is the best beef to use for a beef casserole... in other words, I suppose, what is the german word for stewing steak? Is that Siedfleisch or something else?

Re: In search of good casserole recipes

For something like this?

That's "Voressen" (in one-inch cubes or so), "von der Schulter" (shoulder[blade]) or "Bruststück" (brisket I guess). Depending on the shop (Lidl and Aldi among others) it may be called "Ragout" instead as Voressen is a Swiss German term.

"Siedfleisch" (Sied-fleisch) has its name from "sieden" (boil), typically to make something soup-like because it's less tender thus requires extended boiling/simmering (think 3-4 hours). A remotely related term is "Suppenhuhn", chicken that are used to make a chicken-based soup with.

I just got this "eintopf" recipe book in French, either for the oven of a stove top, it is great, saves time.
