I would also say it beats having fragments of said cheap low-fire clay pot winding up in your food too.

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.
