One-Pot Meals for Your Rockcrok Dutch Oven

Ceramic cookware like the Rockcrok® Dutch Oven is durable and made for everyday use. You can boil pasta or brown meat in it or put it in the oven for roasts. It can also go on your grill for cookouts or in the microwave for fast, convenient cooking. 

Get more use out of your Dutch oven with these five one-pot meals. Each one is a reinvention of common weeknight dinner themes like chicken dinner, pasta night, taco night, or breakfast for dinner.

We can sum up this five-star recipe in two words: Quick and easy. It comes together in about 20 minutes and only uses your microwave. It will make you rethink what it means to serve a microwave dinner.

Change up your typical chicken dinner. In this recipe, you use buttermilk biscuits instead of messing around with pie crusts. Then save even more prep time using frozen veggies. And though it’s great reheated for leftovers, many reviewers noted it’s usually gone in one sitting!

When you have random ingredients in the fridge and aren’t sure what to make, try this savory bread pudding and add in what’s on hand. It’s perfect for making a one-pot breakfast for dinner. Our version calls for pepper, bacon, cheese, and spinach, but that’s just a starting point. Why not broccoli and sausage? Or zucchini and tomatoes? Anything goes.

If you typically have a pizza night and a pasta night during the week, this recipe will be a hit with your family because it’s the best of both worlds. The pizza sauce, peppers, pepperoni, and bubbly mozzarella toppings give this dish its pizza flavor that the whole family will love.

Free-Style Tacos

Try this no-recipe recipe. Here’s a no-fuss way to make taco filling in the microwave. Simply add ground beef, a chopped bell pepper, and chopped onion to your Rockcrok® Dutch Oven. Then sprinkle it all with taco seasoning (or our Tex-Mex Rub). Cover and microwave until the meat is no longer pink, about 7–9 minutes. Break the beef into crumbles halfway through, and then top with shredded cheese and place under the broiler for a minute or two. Serve with tortillas and whatever toppings you have.

    I borrowed my son’s Rockcrok and used it for making some really good loaves of bread.

      I recently started making my own sourdough & I use my rockcrok for that also, works fabulously!

        What temperature do you bake the sourdough bread? My recipe calls for either 450 or 500 degrees. The lid is only supposed to be heated to 400 degrees.

        I have same question as Lorena, what do you use as a lid. I actually thought about using my rock crock. Right now I’m using the my oval covered baker in the cranberry color.

    I love my Rockcrok. I have made homemade cream of mushroom soup in it. My homemade tomato sauce, rice, pudding, stuffing, Shrimp scampi, pasta, casseroles, Italian roast beef and more. I love the versatility of it. The best addition to my kitchen.

      What recipe do you use? I love making sourdough bread and never thought to use my rockcrok.

    • Brigette Meeler January 13, 2021 at 11:23 am #

      Could you share your recipe for bread? I have had my Rockcrok for almost 6 months and have never used it.

    I use mine often for soup, and for keeping meat etc warm. I have the cooker/warmer base which is great for having food ready when my son gets home from cross country/wrestling/soccer practice. I also have the large rockcrok which I use for big batches of soup, corned beef with room for vegetables, and roasts. So far I’ve not used it much for the oven. My son did make bread with it once. Overall I really like the Rockcrok dishes. I would love to have one in a 6 qt. size though.

    Would love to see more recipes so that I can use mine more often.

      Where are the rock crock recipes?!

  9. Tammy P May 10, 2021 at 2:57 pm #

    Beef Stroganoff and Green Bean Casserole is one of my favorites for covered dish dinners. chicken pot pie chowder is also a crowd pleaser with no leftovers.

    I like making Sausage gravy (low-carb) in my rock crock everyday, the smaller one, for Sunday morning breakfast. I use this recipe here https://simplysohealthy.com/low-carb-sausage-gravy/ – if you don’t have the xanthan gum, you can still use cornstarch to thicken the gravy. I do cook my biscuits separately and use this recipe for a truly low carb meal – https://lectinfreefoodie.com/easy-almond-flour-biscuits-paleo-recipe/. Ssshhh don’t tell anyone they won’t even know it is low carb!
