There are many versions of Brunswick Stew. Historically it was made with squirrel, rabbit, or possum. I prefer to use a combination of chicken and pork. The broth is tomato-based with lots of bbq sauce for flavor.

There are lots of veggies in Brunswick Stew. I like to use lima beans, corn, and okra plus some diced potato. Green beans are also frequently used.

I like my Brunswick Stew spicy so I serve it with lots of hot sauce. For a full southern meal, serve with some Hot Water Cornbread.

  1. What a delicious meal. Only change was I placed the pork tenderloin and chicken uncooked 1.5 lbs each in the bottom of the crockpot followed by everything else including a tap of dried parsley. I cooked for 8 hrs in low. Took the meat out and stripped and put back in the pot. Turned it off, stirred and waited 10 minutes. What a wonderful flavor. Definitely a keeper. Thank you.
