le crueset and pancol cabbage

in my old blog i decided i was going to start endorsing products (because you know that will ensure a huge surge in interest). i think i like the tradition. so here goes: teabelly's first product endorsement....

LE CREUSET!!!! i got the flame one, as seen above.

i love this thing so much! i bought it to make pancol cabbage the most fabulous dish my former boyfriend (the frenchman) taught me to make. it goes something like this....

1 head of cabbage
4 slabs of bacon (don't talk about it)
2 chops onions
4 chopped carrots
herbs d'provence

blanch the cabbage for about 4-7 minutes (until it is bright)

meanwhile saute (in the le crueset on the stove) the bacon, onions, and carrots in herbs d'provence until the onions are a bit clear.

after the above mentioned is done, layer cabbage on top of the the other mix. sprinkle herbs d'provence, salt, and pepper between layers of cabbage.

then put the lid on crueset and stick it in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 90 minutes.

pull it out of the oven and serve.

this le crueset made the best pancol cabbage ever! que deliciouso!!!!!!!

I would like to second this product endorsement: le crueset is really great for making bread with a hard crust and a soft middle.
However, as an advocate for consumers worldwide, i'd just like to ask le crueset makers to consider some sale pricing every once in a while.
