Similar cooking principles to a hangi or banana leaf cuisine like Tamales. A tajine is a clay pot too, of course. 

But once I embraced the pressure cooker lifestyle my stomach found a career. My last usage of my ROMMERTOPF before it broke was bread baking.

I have a Rommertopf. It’s great for cooking a chicken. Lovely and moist. I have also done Asian short ribs in it. Here’s aPork & Cider recipe from my blog.

I think it's like a slow cooker for the oven - except, it's not very slow.  The results are quite similar. 

We had left-over chicken so tonight it became chicken pot pie.  I still have half of that left so it will be frozen.  Nothing gets wasted at the Manor.

It was fall off the bone tender with crispy skin on the breast.  Herbs for the chicken from the patch: parsley, time and rosemary.

It's just your way of reminding me about the "Chris/mate" incident.  LOL.  That's so good about the canner!  I've done American breakfast beans and Tex/Mex beans.  The next thing will be quail.

Sorry for name mix-up,  that's twice now.  Three times and I'm out.  Maybe I will try and find that book.  I did find my book on canning, my American cooker arrived today.

Lifeline at Brendale, Barbara. Christa, I spent half the day watching YouTube videos about it. Doing roast chicken as we speak.

Great find Dave, like new.  Do you know how to use it. (soak it in water).  I had a book on it from when I had one in the past.  Great for bread and roast chicken.

Wow! Good find. What op shop was that?
