If you are looking for a southern style Brunswick stew, you will be highly disappointed. If you follow the receipe without doctoring, you get a stew that is the same color as chicken and rice soup and a taste that is just very plain. Doctored it up by adding pork tenderloin, BBQ sauce, Frank's Hot Sauce, tomato puree, a can of tomato soup and several other spices becasue it was very bland and just the wrong color. I would call this a northerner's interpretation of a deeply southern dish. Get a different recipe if you are looking for a Brunswick stew similar to those served in southern BBQ joints
This stew has so much flavor. The store didn't have the salt pork so I substituted it with several slices of bacon. I put three slices for the initial boil then put another slice in for the last hour. Excellent
I made a huge pot of this for a dinner I cooked at the church last night. I had a bunch of barbqued chicken left from a previous dinner and I boiled this to make it easier to remove from the bone. I used this liquid as the base for my stew. The only other thing I did different was I used canned potaoes and chopped them up and I used speckled butter beans instead of lima beans. Everyone raved about it and the entire pot was consumed. I increased the recipe to feed 50 people. I will diffently be making this again.
This is a good recipe but the Brunswick Stew that my Virginia grandmother made was sweet. This is the same basic recipe as the one she used but if you want it to be authentic in flavor try adding a tablespoon or two of sugar. With buttermilk bisquits and sliced vinegar cucumbers you will have as authentic a Virginia supper as you could ever hope for. Oh! And don't forget the sweet tea!
