  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet, and saute the onions and celery until soft. Mix in the pork and beef, and cook until evenly browned. Do not drain.
  2. Transfer the pork and beef mixture to a large stock pot over low heat. Stir in the shredded chicken, tomatoes and their liquid, ketchup, and barbeque sauce. Season with salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Place the whole green pepper into the mixture. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 hours, or until thickened.

I made this stew when having a large group over to eat outdoors. Cooked this in my cast iron dutch oven using charcole under the oven and on top of the lid. Every drop of this stew was eaten and...

Aw, shucks! It didn't get me a husband! I really prefer using beef, pork and chicken cubes, rather than the ground, and shredded meat. I often adapt this to my slow cooker.

I don't know if this will get anyone a husband, but the one I have loved it. I am somewhat embarrassed to say that we had leftovers for breakfast this morning! The barbeque flavor in this stew ...

This was great! The barbecue sauce gave it a unique flavor (at least for this northern girl). I used shredded beef and pork instead of the ground meat, and added about 1/4 cup of Jack Daniels. D...
