As long as you have a heavy aluminum or stainless steel skillet without non-stick coating, it should work fine.

I have one... its just... very old. And getting anything out of it without it sticking usually ends in tears.

After reading this blog on the chemistry of cast-iron seasoning, I'm a big fan of her method of flaxseed-oil seasoning. The only caveat is it's pretty smoky, so be sure to run your fan. (I use the grill outside to do it.)

sorry i wasn't clear. I meant I have an old stainless steel skillet.. it is so roughed up that even with oil most things stick. It has been designated our fried wonton pan.

Yesterday we went food shopping. We bought a 9 (yes, 9!) lb sirloin tip roast and 7lbs of pork chops. So lots of batch cooking happening today.

3 lbs of the beef roast are going into Carne de Chile Colorado. http://www.latina.com/food/recipes/aaron-sanchez-chile-colorado-sauce#axzz2hWylVymU Which will be served over rice and/or with tortillas.
4 lbs of the pork chops are being cured and smoked to be eaten later in the week.
6 lbs of the beef roast is being smoked and shredded. Half as barbecue, half for tacos and enchiladas.

I am making a hot crab dip and a large pan of macaroni and cheese as well.

Tonight's dinner will be smoked beef roast, roasted acorn squash, sauteed spinach and mushrooms and pumpkin cake.

I'm enjoying some butternut squash soup while my tomato jam cooks on my stove. I need to come up with something awesome for dinner to enjoy this stuff.

I ended up making avocado deviled eggs earlier.  I should probably eat something else...but I don't feel like cooking.

Wild mushroom soup with a Parmesan crisp, and crostini with ricotta, wildflower honey and truffle oil, and a glass of Sancerre,  and a churro with chocolate and vanilla dipping sauces, a ginger-strawberry margarita, and some green apple cotton candy with pop rocks for dessert.
Some very generous friends from waaaay back were in town and treating us quite right!

It feels like a soup and sandwich night.

I will be making spaghetti sauce tonight - I can't go back to the jarred stuff.   I admit to cheating and using no-salt-added canned whole plum tomatoes though - it keeps the cost down to be about the same as the jarred stuff (they were BOGO last week!)

Hmmmmm
