I was using a recipe for beef stew and decided to try making it in my Le Creuset Doufeu, so I made a few modifications. My husband said it was even better than the stew he had made from the original recipe. Also, I used turnips instead of potatoes to make it lower-carb; it was my first time using that substitution and my husband loved it. If you've never cooked with your Doufeu before, don't forget to put the ice on top. And keep in mind that whatever you cook in there will end up producing a lot of liquid that will be preserved by the Doufeu cooking method, so you should adjust recipes according. For example, the non-Doufeu version of this recipe called for 20 oz of beef broth.
