Dutch Oven cooking has been a long- time favorite in our family. There’s just no comparison for a slow cooked meal in cast iron. Rather you are cooking over the campfire or in your home oven, it’s seriously  my favorite for short ribs, roasts and stews.

Camping Dutch Oven Short Ribs with Potatoes and Onions

We have enjoyed a few cooler days and decided a little outdoor Dutch Oven cooking. It’s been ages since we have been camping but we enjoy campfire cooking at home as well.

For these Dutch Oven Short Ribs, we decided instead of browning the beef ribs, that we would smoke them for a while on the grill before adding them to the dutch oven.

The results were phenomenal. The ribs were just completely tender and juicy. The smoke flavor really added that campfire feel to the dish.

What is the Best Dutch Oven?

I have always loved cooking with cast iron. I have many cast iron skillets and several Dutch Ovens. For campfire cooking, I prefer a Lodge Dutch Oven. Most cast iron Dutch Ovens will have a bail or handle that will hang over an open fire.

For home use, standard oven cooking, I do love a Le Creuset Dutch Oven that is enameled cast iron. They are pricey but seriously, with a little care, this cookware will last a lifetime or even longer.

What Size of Dutch Oven is Best?

I have several sizes but I most often use the 5 1/2 quart, which will hold 5-6 servings. I do have a 13 quart that I use for Mom’s Homemade Chicken and Dumplings. It’s nice to have when feeding a crowd or a bunch of hungry guys.
