Hearty Traditional Brunswick Stew

Once you try my delicious Brunswick Stew you will be hooked and wonder how you made it this far without it.

Brunswick Stew

When I slow cook or smoke a pork butt I always make sure I save some of the meat so I can make this flavor packed stew. This is one of our favorite recipes and using already smoked and roasted meat makes it pretty much a dump-and-go recipe.

Sometimes you need just a little taste of home, and this Brunswick Stew is all that and a bag of chips, y’all. With every bite, it just fills me with warmth and makes me feel like I’m back home in sweet Georgia. 🙂

RECIPE NOTES AND HELPFUL TIPS:

You can use canned or homemade broth. Homemade broth adds a richer flavor.

Adjust the thickness of the stew by adding more broth or allowing it to reduce further during cooking.

A splash of vinegar or a squeeze of lemon juice just before serving can brighten the flavors.
