dutch oven cooking

dutch-oven-cooking

If you can cook in a dutch oven you can cook anywhere and anyplace–literally and figuratively.  Yes, you can cook indoors and outdoors, in a stove, over a fire, in a hearth, on a wood stove, even in a sun oven, which is all pretty amazing. But there is something about that knowledge that spills into other parts of your culinary life.  Maybe, it’s the nostalgic images of our ancestors cooking over an open flame in a dutch oven that gives you confidence that the way has been paved, perhaps it’s simply the knowledge that if you can’t get it to work the way you want with one method you can find another, or maybe it’s just the attitude of if they’re hungry they’ll eat it as people have done for centuries because what is cooking in the dutch oven is what’s for dinner.

16 even-sized open cup mushrooms, stalks cut level
3 tbsp corn or vegetable oil
75g unsalted butter, softened
3 cloves garlic, chopped very finely
2 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
50g fresh breadcrumbs

Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/gas mark 6. Lightly fry the mushrooms, cap-side down, in hot oil for 20 seconds.

Arrange the mushrooms in a shallow roasting tin with the stalks facing upwards.

Mix together the butter, garlic, thyme, lemon juice and seasoning. Spoon a little garlic butter on to each mushroom, then lightly press the breadcrumbs on top. Either refrigerate for later use, or cook immediately in the oven for 10 minutes.
