I didn't add the pulled pork because I didn't want to go to the trouble (and couldn't find it ready-made) but otherwise I made this as directed. It was my first Instant Pot recipe and worked well for that since it was so simple. We found that it didn't have enough flavor for us but after I added in more seasonings (mostly a Cajun blend) it was good! It didn't taste quite like the Brunswick stew that I know but it was still pretty tasty. I'll play around with the seasonings more next time but this recipe has great potential! Read More

This had an odd sweet/tangy taste that didn't sit well with my family. Read More

I followed the directions but I added one more potato. It was delicious and will definitely make it again using my new Instant Pot. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly; I made it on the stove, though. I let it simmer for about 2 hours so that it was thicker than the picture. We like our stews thick. This is a great recipe; it's like the Brunswick stew in Eastern NC. I've saved it and will make again. Read More

The only changes I made was to use the low sodium canned tomatoes and chicken broth. Also I don't have an instant pot so I simmered this on the stove for a couple of hours to let the flavors meld. I have tried other Brunswick stew recipes but none have ever hit the mark before this one. It tastes just like the Brunswick stew I grew up with in Georgia my whole family loved it! We actually gorged ourselves on this tonight it was so so good. I will be making this regularly thank you for the recipe! Read More
