Steamed Garlic in a Staub Pan

Steamed Garlic in a Staub Pan

I love the taste of piping hot anchovy-flavored garlic.
Please feel free to enjoy this dish with some tasty sake...

Ingredients: One 10 cm pico cocotte round dish

Garlic (peeled)
10 cloves (regular sized)
Sausage (2-2.5 cm circular slices)
2-3
Anchovy filet (roughly chopped)
1 filet
Garlic oil or olive oil (Recipe ID: 1117234)
As desired
Rock salt or Krazy salt
1 pinch

Steps

1. Prepare the garlic, anchovy, and sausage as indicated in the ingredients list.
2. Brush the whole staub pot with garlic oil. You can also lightly grease it with a paper towel.
3. Add the garlic from step 1 to step 2, and place the sausage on top. Place the anchovy on the very top.
4. Drizzle with 10 ml garlic oil in a circular motion onto step 3 from the top, and cover with a lid.
5. Turn step 4 on over a medium heat. Please set a timer for 3 minutes. A medium heat should be proportionate to the size of the pot.
6. After step 5 has cooked for 5 minutes, turn down the burner to the lowest setting and set the timer for 7 minutes.
7. Once step 6 has cooked for 7 minutes, open the lid and give it a quick stir, and immediately close the lid again. Set the timer again for 5 minutes.
8. Turn it off after step 7 has cooked for 5 minutes. Let sit for 5-10 minutes while covered with the lid.
9. Please adjust the sitting time in step 8 so that the garlic turns out how you like it. 10 minutes will make it soft enough to crush with your tongue.
10. After 5-10 minutes has passed, sprinkle with rock salt or Krazy salt, and it is done.
11. The anchovy-flavored piping hot garlic and sausage collaboration is so delicious, I can't get enough of it.
12. This is a simple treasured dish that I use for gatherings. Please feel free to enjoy it with some tasty sake.

Story Behind this Recipe

I have been drawn by the charm of staub pots since the fall of 2012, so I find the time to experiment over and over again.
I wonder if this is an evolution of the grilled garlic that I always order at yakiniku restaurants. This my favorite dish to pair with sake.
