    Cut up 1 chicken, cut the breasts into thirds, place in the pot. Add
    several slices of fresh ginger, a couple scallions cut in large pieces,
    straw or black mushrooms, some salt and a drizzle of sesame oil and a few
    drops of soy sauce. Add enough chicken stock to just reach the top of the
    ingredients. Water works just fine, too. Steam over boiling water for
    about 50 minutes. You can add anything else you like, including tofu, water
    chestnuts, bamboo shoots you name it.

    Until my cat ruined my yunan pot I made it often.

    Almost forgot, you'll ant some dry cooking wine in it as well. Dry cooking
    sherry works well if you can't get the shao hsing wine. Just use less salt
    if you use the cooking wine.

    Steaming defeats the whole purpose of the clay pot. Clay pot
    [dishes] are meant to be baked or used on a stovetop (with a
    diffuser).

    Nowadays they're used mostly for serving the prepared dish only as
    there are more convenient ways to slow cook.

    Hi Hoges! I've not got the exact things but a few tht are somehwat close
    where you could mix and match a bit. One is much like what Paul posted, but
    with a little more detail. Only the first 2 actually use a clay pot. The
    others show likely seasonings or straw mushrooms with chicken.

    MMMMM----- Recipe via Meal-Master (tm) v8.05

    Title: Garlic and Ginger Chicken Baked in a Clay Pot
    Categories: Chinese, Chicken
    Yield: 4 Servings

    4 lb Frying chicken
    2 lg Garlic cloves, minced
    1 Knob fresh ginger, grated
    Salt and pepper, to taste
    2 ts Asian sesame oil

    I highly recommend the romertopf type clay pots. Especially for
    chicken. I've done several chicken recipes in mine and they all came
    out extremely savory and done to perfection. There's a unique, rich
    flavor that seems to typify food cooked in this way. Haven't tried
    this one yet, but it's high on the list. The ingredients are Asian,
    the technique Western. The result, I imagine, is delectable. It's a
    very simple recipe. At least the first time I'd resist any temptation
    to embellish it. Well, maybe a few fermented black beans... ;-}

    Rinse the chicken inside and out and pat dry. Work your fingers
    under the skin of the chicken, carefully loosening skin from flesh
    across the breast and legs.

    Mix together the garlic, ginger, salt and pepper; rub evenly under the
    skin.

    Brush the chicken with sesame oil.

    Soak a 2-quart unglazed clay cooking pot in cold water to cover for 10
    minutes. Drain and place the chicken breast-up in the pot. Cover and
    place in a cold oven; turn the thermostat to 475F and roast for 1
    hour.

    Remove pot from oven and place on a towel. Put lid on another towel.
    (The hot clay will break if placed on a cold surface). Transfer
    chicken to a heated serving platter and drizzle with some of the
    juices left in the pot.

    Serves 4.

    Title: Clay-Pot Orange Duckling
    Categories: Duck
    Yield: 4 Servings

    1 Three-to-five-pound
    Duckling
    Salt
    Freshly ground black pepper
    3 Or 4 garlic cloves, crushed
    2 Or 3 medium oranges, peeled
    And sliced (reserve rind)
    1 tb Bottled orange-peel spice
    3/4 c Orange juice
    1/2 c Soy sauce
    2 tb Grated fresh ginger
    1 ts Ground allspice
    5 tb Brown sugar
    2 tb Arrowroot

    Soak clay pot and lid in water for 15 minutes. Wash duckling inside
    and out with cold water. Cut away excess skin and fat. Rub salt,
    pepper, and garlic inside duckling. Sprinkle orange slices with more
    pepper, and stuff duckling with them. Put duckling in pot, breast
    down. Grate reserved rind over duckling, then sprinkle with
    orange-peel spice. Mix juice, soy sauce, ginger, allspice, and sugar
    in bowl; pour over and around duckling. (Duckling should be half
    covered by sauce; add more juice and soy sauce as needed.)

    Place covered pot in cold oven, and set temperature at 480 degrees.
    Cook for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Remove from oven, and pour juices
    into saucepan. Return pot to oven, uncovered. Brown duckling, about
    10 to
    15 minutes.

    Bring sauce to a boil and thicken with arrowroot, 1 tablespoon at a
    time. (If sauce separates, add a little hot water.) Add more brown
    sugar if desired.

    Note: A 3-to-5-pound chicken may be substituted for duckling. From:

    Here's another simple recipe. Straw mushrooms are available canned
    in the Oriental section of many supermarkets or fresh in Asian
    groceries. Enoki mushrooms would probably be a good substitute,
    although I haven't tried that...

    Heat the oil in a saucepan or wok and fry the garlic until soft but
    not brown.

    Add the chicken and stir-fry for 5 minutes. cool a little. Add the
    water and mushrooms. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes.
    Add the lemon juice. Cover, and cook gently for a further 10 minutes.

    Add the chilies, spring onions and ginger. Remove from the heat.
    Sprinkle with coriander leaves before serving.

    Bamboo shoots complement straw mushrooms, I think, so I'd try
    something along these lines:

    1 chicken, cut into pieces (cut the breasts into 2 or 3 pieces,
    the thighs in half)
    1 small can sliced bamboo shoots, drained and rinsed
    1 can straw mushrooms, drained and rinsed
    4 TB soy sauce
    2 TB rice wine or dry sherry
    1 clove garlic, smashed
    1 quarter-sized slice fresh ginger
    2 star anise
    optional: 1 dried red chile pepper (I usually include, but for a
    dish aiming to highlight the mushrooms, probably not)
    optional: half a head of Napa cabbage, chopped into large pieces
    (it will not be crisp-tender, but still goes well in this kind of
    dish)
    water to at least half the depth of the chicken (may partially
    supplement with chicken broth for extra richness)

    Follow your clay pot/sand pot directions for slow cooking, or simmer
    in enameled cast iron pot and transfer to clay pot for serving.

    Optional: a few drops of sesame oil just before serving. -aem

    Bullhit. The whole reason they have a steam chimney in the center is
    because it is meant for STEAMING. Have you ever even seen one? I don't
    think you have. Googe Yunnan pot.

    Actually Paul, I'm interested in learning more about them. I googled that
    image and it was an interesting device. Looks like you fill the core with
    water?

    I have only vague recollections of soaking them in water or something
    before use (things others have mentioned).

    A regular clay pot or sand pot is just a pot, meant for slow cooking
    or braising. No steam chimney. The Yunnan pot you are talking about
    is a specialized design. It is, as you say, meant for steaming, (and
    soup-making) but it is not what most people mean when they say "clay
    pot." I'd be very surprised if the OP had a Yunnan pot. -aem

    No, the core has an opening in the center which allows the steam to enter
    the pot. You place it over a pot of boiling water. Remember that in China
    they did not use ovens so they developed other cooking methods and vessels.
    The Yunnan pot is a dedicated and rather ingenious steaming device.

    > I have only vague recollections of soaking them in water or something
    > before use (things others have mentioned).


    That is not what is meant by clay pot cooking. In Chinese cuisine it refers
    to a cooking method common to the Yunnan province hence the other term
    Yunnan pot cooking.

    It is a wonderful way to prepare chicken, beef or pork and makes for an
    unexpectedly good result. And it could not be easier to do. I am ordering
    a new yunnan pot after this convo made me miss the one my kitty destroyed
    during her rather tumultuous kittenhood.

    I beg to differ. I was turned on to clay pot cooking years ago when I went
    to a Chinese restauramt and we ordered "clay pot chicken" for the table.
    They brought it out in a large Yunnan pot. And on many other restaurant
    menus I'd see it listed the same - clay pot chicken. Even if it was not on
    the menu I discovered most restaurants will prepare it for you specially if
    you ask and are willing to wait an hour for dinner.

    You should give it a try, the results are really declicious. I also have
    made Yunnan beef the same way. It comes out so incredibly tender and then
    you have this amazing broth to go with it.

    A claypot is not the same as a Yunnan pot. It doesn't have a steam chimney
    in the center. Here, take a look:

    A Yunnan (note the spelling) pot is different than a Chinese clay
    pot used in the rest of China and the rest of world, for that
    matter. Claypots used by the vast majority of china have solid lids
    and are used in the OVEN or over a fire.

    Look it up, you arrogant, ignorant ...

    > Moron.


    Indeed.

    Maybe if he was looking for instructions for a Yunnan steam pot,
    then you may have been of some use for once.

    Is there anything else you'd like to me to teach you? Or will you
    stomp your feet up and down insisting you're right and the rest of
    world is wrong (as usual).

    Looks familiar. How would you use it to cook if you had no oven? It would
    work great as a cooking vessel but they didn't have ovens in China for a
    couple of thousand years.

    Nope. Wertz shoots off his damn mouth all the damn time and he hasn't got a
    clue what he's talking about. If doing a sinple Google search is too much
    work he can just kiss my ass.

    How about you go steal something out of somebody's shopping cart again to
    heal your bruised ego? Loser. And learn to cook. It's not like you'll
    ever have a woman to do it for you.

    Yeah they had all those ovens in China all those couple thousand years.
    Well I'll have you know Yunnan clay is unique and is what makes the pot able
    to withstand the high heat of a fire. Google it. You might lean something.

    No you go right ahead and teach the world what a cool guy you are by being a
    world class pain in the ass. That much you are qualified to teach.

    Claypots (a.k.a. sandpots) can be used on the stovetop. The main precaution
    taken when using them is not to have them abruptly transition from a hot
    surface to a cold one, or vice versa.

    But in this case, YOU are the one who failed to do a Google search, and you
    were in the wrong. A Google Image search with the keywords "clay pot
    chinese" didn't turn up one single instance of a Yunnan steam pot in the
    first hundred hits.

    I did a Google search on Yunnan pot and came up with hundreds of referneces
    for "clay pot cooking." Pictures too. Many of them Yunnan pots. The
    sandpot is a different animal and is soaked in water to saturate the clay
    then buried in fire embers and ashes from what I learned. Which is not what
    the OP seemed to be referring to. And in doing my pre-post research I found
    this awesome potter who makes them to order. So I bought one and also
    tagine. I am dying to make Moroccon food next.

    So yeah, I did learn a thing before I posted. Unlike sqwerts.
