Cooking with Cast Iron Cookware

How to Cook With Cast Iron Cookware

This week I had the opportunity to pan-sear some tuna steaks for dinner. It was quick and very easy and the steaks came out perfect. Not only did my wife and I have a great meal, the next day I made great tuna salad with the leftovers.

I’m working on an article about cooking tuna and some of the ways you can be sure it will come out just how you like it but today I wanted to tell you about an article I just posted on cast iron cookware called, Cast Iron Cookware.

It was sent to me from a friend and is filled with great information about the history (Did you know that cast iron was invented in China nearly 3,000 years ago), the many benefits of cooking with it, how to season new cast iron, and how to care for it.

If you didn’t get the segue, I pan-seared the tuna I mention above in my cast iron pan as you can see in my photo. It is one of my favorite pans for cooking tuna, shark, swordfish or any meaty fish steaks.

I highly recommend you have at least one cast iron pan in your kitchen. They are not expensive to buy new but you can usually find used ones in garage sales. They may need to be cleaned up a bit and re-seasoned, but you can usually find them cheap.

There are a lot of great brand names when it come to cookware including All-Clad, Calphalon, Viking, Le Creuset and what you choose should be based on your own personal needs. Personally, I like to go to a store, pick up the various pots and pans I'm interested in and get a feel for how they "fit" in my own hands. I then go to the internet and do my research to find the best price.

Below are some sources I've found that help you find out what's out there on the market, give you an idea of what these products cost and offer you an opportunity to buy them. The links below are affiliate links.

    My mom always used cast iron when I was growing up. I have quite a few cast iron skillets, but don’t use them as often as I should. They are very handy when you go camping, though!
