Easy Brunswick Stew

Easy Brunswick Stew is a thick and hearty mix of pulled pork, chicken (or turkey), vegetables, seasonings, tomato sauce, and BBQ sauce. It has an ingredient list that is a little on the long side, but it's really just a dump and heat recipe that doesn't take long at all.

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen lima beans
  • 1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cup BBQ Sauce
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen corn
  • 1/2 teaspoon tabasco sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 1/2 cups diced cooked chicken or turkey
  • 1 pound pulled pork


  • Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook 5 minutes.
  • Add lima beans and cook 2 minutes.
  • Add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, BBQ sauce, and chicken broth. Simmer 15 minutes.
  • Add corn, seasonings and meats and simmer 5 more minutes.


Note: I use Bone Suckin BBQ Sauce for this recipe. It is a fairly thin sauce and the flavor is not as strong as some sauces. If you use a different BBQ sauce you may want to start with about half the amount of BBQ sauce the recipe calls for. You can always add more.
