Metrocurean's Le Creuset One-Pot Giveaway

There are few things more handy and convenient in a cook's repertoire than a one-pot meal. Everything goes in the pot, cooks away and, the best part, there are no piles of dirty pans to clean up.

As the weather gets cool, I love great one-pot recipes for braising meats or making soups. I invested in a sturdy and endlessly useful Le Creuset pot years ago. It lives on my stovetop, and I love that workhorse so.

If you have a great one-pot recipe to share with Metrocurean readers, you could win your own 7.25 quart cast iron French oven in the handsome new Cassis color — a $275 value — courtesy of the kind folks at Le Creuset.

Here's how the giveaway will go down:

- Send your original one-pot recipe in an email to info AT with the subject "Le Creuset Giveaway" by Monday Oct. 25. A great photo of your dish is extra credit! Please include a little about yourself, too.

- I'll choose five finalists whose recipes sound delicious and post them on Metrocurean.

- Readers will vote on the five finalists, and the winner scores that gorgeous Le Creuset pot.

Good luck and get to recipe writing!
