Crock pot? Who needs a crock pot?

Not when I have a Le Creuset enameled cast iron dutch oven, and it makes meat come out looking like this:

The flavor difference between this and what comes out of a crock pot is amazing. I used my crock pot recipe for Cafe Rio Pork and didn't change a thing. Wow, now you can really taste the flavor. It came out tasting like it was prepared in a smoker. I am so excited to try more recipes in my new pot!

I found conversion charts online that state how to convert crock pot recipes to dutch oven. Cook at 325 for 1/4 the time for low setting recipes and 1/2 the time for high setting recipes. These are just general guidelines.
