In fact, any of our Easy Grill Recipes would work very well on a cast iron pan.
The deep ridges in the pan quickly and effortlessly sear your food on a high temperature with no fat (or very little) and impart those tasty grill marks given by outdoor grills.
Using Your Pan. This type of pan heats very efficiently, so please exercise care as you use it. Remember that the handle is made of the same material as the pan and can easily burn you so you will need to use a potholder when handling.
To use your pan, simply place it on a medium high burner. While you do not need to grease your pan, I recommend placing a little oil on your food before you grill it. Let your food cook for a few minutes (3-4 minutes or to desired doneness) before you try to turn it. When it is ready, it will release easily from the grill pan without sticking.
Seasoning Cast Iron Skillet. Many of today's pans are pre-seasoned before you buy them, but if you happen to purchase one that has not, simply follow the directions on this link.
Cast Iron Skillet Care. Your fry pan may be cleaned easily by simply wiping it with a paper towel moistened with a little oil. For more tips, see this link.
