One Pot

Beef!

I did it! After thinking about it for at least a half year I finally purchased a Dutch Oven. Yes I know, 60 Euros is a ton of money for a pot. Was it really worth it? Yes! To my own surprise this thing is worth every cent. I had no idea that a really expensive pot compared to a normal prized pot is so big. It’s a bit like magic of some sort. But what really amazes me are all these yummi one pot recipes that are out there. One pot (Eintopf) is actually a German thing. Back when I was a kid one pot meals where neither healthy nor yummi. They where just time saving and filled your belly (who cares for taste or nutritional value, right?). I still shudder when I remember that one pot my father made so often. Ground beef, green bell peppers – at that time only the green kind was available here in Germany and oh boy, was it bitter – and potatoes. He cooked that stuff for hours till even the last vitamin was killed off. The only thing left from all the bell pepper was the peel. Gods, that stuff was horribad. A total waste of resources. Stir fried that would have been a nice and healthy meal, but during that time people tended to cook actual healthy stuff to pulp.

Have a pawesome day, stay healthy and be safe out there.
