PW’s Meat-like Mushrooms

I am one big fan of Pioneer Woman and I basically love pretty much all her recipes which I often recreate and post here as well. All her recipes are divine but this one in particular went right to my heart: her “Burgundy Mushrooms” , right out of her cooking book!

I’ve made it for the first time last Friday and:

a) they are super easy

b) they don’t require any assistence while cooking

c) they taste like meat…and I am not kidding here…they really do!

So, since I love PW, and I love her Burgundy Mushroom, and I love ya, I have decided to share here with you her recipe.

Enjoy my friends!


  • 1 kg of mushrooms
  • 3 cups red wine
  • 1 stick of butter
  • black pepper
  • 2 Beef Bouillon Cubes
  • 1 tsp garlicpowder
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce

Start by washing all the mushrooms

Put them in a big pot

add butter

Worcestershire Sauce

black pepper

Beef Bouillon Cubes

garlic powder

wine and water

Bring it to a boil, turn to low heat, cover with a lid and cook for 5-6 hours

After 5-6 hours remove the lid and keep cooking (PW said for 3 hours but mine where pretty dry after 1 hour…)

Your delight mushrooms are ready!

And yes, they really taste like meat!
