A thick cassoulet , with properly prepared beans , and the right meat ,
seasoned with the right hot spices , might make a decent stovetop stew...

I still am more inclined to an oven prepared dish , overall , on cold days , as it warms the house while the dish is being baked...saves money then as it incorporates two jobs at same time...

but cassoulet IS an oven-baked dish, definitely not a stove-top
