My husband's mother use to make him brunswick stew when he was little and it was his favoriate. I looked up brunswick stew and found hundreds of recipes. I questioned him on his Mom's version to make it as close to her as I could and this was it! i have made this at least 50 times and it is always a big hit. I did make a few changes. I leave out the ribs completely. I sautee onions and green peppers in olive oil and put them right into the slow cooker. Also, a huge short cut, I buy two rotissarie chickens and just pull all the chicken right from the bone (this saves sooo much time)! Put the chicken in the crock pot along with all the other ingredients. I also double all the ingredients (still only using two rotissarie chickens)to have a full crock pot and have enough to freeze.This is just GREAT! Everyone tasting it always wants the recipe and very simple to make too.
This stew wasn't very impressive, it seemed too sweet and not very tasty, my husband didn't like it at all. I will not make this again.
This was the closest recipe I could find to what my Honey grew up with. He loves it! I leave out the ribs. There is plenty of shredded chicken that it isnt missed and it cuts way down on the fat. I actually made this for Christmas day and the entire family wanted the recipe!
Good and easy. I did think it was too strong on the steak sauce. I will only put 1/3 of that in next time. I also added a few tablespoons of butter. Very good for a crowd...
This was really good, DH loved it. I used pulled pork instead of the ribs as I had it leftover in the fridge. A little too salty for me (maybe cut back on the A1 next time). I served it over biscuits..
My honey is very picky about brunswick stew and he loved this one. Next time i will add a touch of cumin or look for a smoky steak sauce to cut a bit of the sweetness but it is really a great recipe.
Most authentic flavor I have gotten. I used KC BBQ sauce instead of the ketchup and steak sauce. I also put in the remains of a beef roast. Delicious
I agree that it is very close to the original. Used shredded pork also, instead of the ribs.
