cubed pork shoulder roast
cubed beef stew meat
1 1/2 pounds
bone-in chicken parts
1 (15 ounce) can
smoky barbeque sauce
green bell pepper, seeded and diced
apple cider vinegar
ground black pepper
hot pepper sauce, or to taste
I scaled this recipe back a little (there are just 2 of us). I used lean farm-raised (longhorn lean) stewing beef and farm-raised pork. I didn't used chicken or chicken broth - I used beef broth. I used all spices recommended by this recipe, including Sweet Baby Ray's Hickory & Brown Sugar barbecue sauce. Except for the onion, carrot and potato, I use whatever vegetables we like - it's all good. Serve with sweet corn bread and honey butter. YUMMMMM!
It was good, but nothing special. Just tasted like a normal stew. I had some leftover raw chicken, pork, & beef from other recipes earlier this week, so it worked well to throw them all together. I added only 1/4 the BBQ sauce it called for, kind of wish I hadn't added any. It really just adds sugar to the soup. It's not a bad standard stew recipe, though.
