This is my go-to brunswick stew recipe. I have made it 5 times, for dinners at home and for pot-lucks at work. It always gets rave reviews and special requests. The recipe does make a lot, which never goes to waste. My modifications to this recipe started with my first trial of it because I wanted a crockpot-easy recipe. I start by turning on the crockpot and putting in the ketchup, bbq sauce, and tomatoes, letting it heat up on low while I saute the celery and onion. I brown the beef and sausage (Jimmy Dean 'HOT') separately and add them to the crockpot when they're finished. For the chicken (Ive used rotisserie chicken from walmart as well as ground chicken- even substituted ground turkey when no rotisserie chicken was available) there is some flexibility. I add all this to the crockpot, stirring occasionally. In time crunches, Ive gone ahead and added the cream corn and whole green pepper and cooked it until the pepper softens, then chopped and added back to the mix. I usually make this the night before I need it and refrigerate. In the morning, I'll turn it on high and its piping hot and delicious by lunchtime! This recipe makes a huge amount of stew but I have never had any leftovers. The girls at work literally scrape the bottom of the crockpot. Every kernel of corn is gone by the end of the day! I cannot praise this recipe enough! It is simple and delicious and a wonderful addition to my recipe box! I've gotten rave reviews from everyone I have ever made it for.
