s/o slow cooker recipes vs cast iron/dutch oven

Recommended Posts

So I recently invested in a nice cast iron dutch oven and wanted to know can I make the same slow cook recipes in it in the oven or stove top?


Will things like chicken dry out if cooked that long on the stove/oven, I'm assuming so?


Any good blogs to follow for cast iron slow cooking?

The low setting on a CP is usually about 200 degrees.

The high setting is 300 degrees.


I think my CP cooks even hotter than that!


So you can probably use the oven depending on what your lowest degree is. Mine is 250. So I would set the cook time less than what is suggested in recipes that use "low". Keep it covered and it should work out fine!
