How will I know if my Glorious One-Pot Meal is done?
You’ll know a Glorious Pot Meal is done about 5 minutes after the aroma first wafts from the oven. NEVER crack the lid too soon. Glorious Pot Meals use what I call an “infusion cooking process”, wherein the liquid from the vegetables heats to cook the rest of the food. Opening the lid allows too much steam to escape and slows the cooking process. This is why it is essential that your dutch oven has a lip on the underside of the lid to form a tight seal.
