Giveaway: Boeuf Bourguignon Dinner Kit

As the dark nights draw in, the slow cooker and ‘one-pot’ pans are put to work in my kitchen. The season for comfort food is upon us. The classic French dish of Boeuf Bourguignon made with good quality beef, bacon, a deep red wine and rich gravy is the ultimate winter warming supper.

A little while ago I joined Marco Pierre White in his kitchen with the Knorr UK team, to learn a few tricks for cooking one-pot meals such as a sweet pumpkin soup, a Parmesan-laced risotto and a quick chicken casserole.

This week, I’ll be trying out Marco’s recipe for Boeuf Bourguignon with Wild Mushrooms (you can see a video here) using seasonal ingredients from Forman and Field.

Bouef Bourguignon

Beef Bourguignon is also sometimes known as Beef Burgundy, because it originates form the French region of Burgundy or Bourgogne. Julia Child famously described the dish as “certainly one of the most delicious beef dishes concocted by man.”

To test Julia Child’s theory alongside Marco Pierre White’s recipe, I have a second box of ingredients to offer one lucky reader.

The contents of the winner’s box will include:

  • 800g beef brisket
  • 200g pearl onions
  • 200g wild mushrooms
  • unsmoked bacon
  • 125ml port
  • leek and celery
  • thyme and parsley
  • Bolney Estate Lychgate Red Wine
  • Knorr Rich Beef Stock Pot

Please note, you will have to be in to sign for your parcel containing fresh ingredients on Friday 16th November – UK delivery only.

    Casserole… Can’t really say which casserole, I like beef, chicken, turkey, lamb…
    Choosing which is better is too difficult.

  2. JULIE BANKS says

    chicken and mushorooms with cream and white wine, cooked in my slow cooker. Served with fresh crusty bread and rice.

  3. Deborah Henderson says

  4. Sophia says

    Toulose sausages braised in kale, red onion, rosemary, garlic and a little cream. A perfect winter warmer.

    Currently I’m going through a spell of cooking Chowders – mussel chowder being the best.

  8. Gary Topley says

    I really like Irish Stew, my mum and dad used to make it for me when I was younger and I still like it now.

  9. says

    Its got to be a proper cassoulet with pork and beans and a breadcrumb top although they really do take alot of effort! I’m a massive fan of one pot cooking though, just browsing the recipes on my blog tonight made me realise that!

  10. Fran Light says

    My favourite one pot meal is my home made Spanish-style chicken casserole – with chicken, red peppers, black olives, onions and paprika. It’s great on its own, with crusty bread or with rice.

  11. Shirley Lancaster says

    I love to make beef stew with dumplings and anything else that can be made in one pot.

  12. Sam says

    The only meal my husband cooks for me and from our first date onward we have it each week – pork & apples in cider mmmm

  13. Hazel Rea says

    Our family favourite one pot meal is turkey casserole – it’s very easy to ring the changes with different combinations of herbs, spices and vegetables.
