I'd say, cook it in any pot of appropriate material for the cooking 
method which has a mouth the same width or wider than the base. When 
finished cooking and cooled enough to handle, carefully turn upside 
down into a dish that is a little wider than the mouth of the pot and 
capacious enough to hold the food.

Well, ok, one trick is to have the serving dish be relatively heat 
resistant (i.e., no plastic :-), place it bottom up with its mouth 
over the mouth of the pot, then, holding them in place together, 
invert both dish and pot so that the pot empties into the dish.

Won't necessarily have the same result as breaking a cheap low-fire 
ceramic pot, but beats destroying modern cookware or expensive 
re-creation cookware.
