Default Brunswick Stew

Anyone have a recipe they would share for feeding about 20-25 people?

Smithfields BBQ restaurants here in eastern NC has some damn good Brunswick stew. Chicken and BBQ in the stew make it good. Can't help you as far as recipe.

This is my wife's grandmother's recipe. I haven't tried it, but it looks like it would feed about 18-20 people. If it were me, I'd use leftover pulled pork.

One 3 pound chicken
One pound lean beef
One pound lean pork
3 medium onions, chopped

Put meat in a large, heavy pot.
Season with salt and pepper.
Add onions and cover with water.

Cook until meat falls from the bones (several hours).
Remove from fire and allow to cool.

Remove meat from bone.
Tear into small shreds and return to stock.

Add:

Four cans diced tomatoes
Five tablespoons worcestershire sauce
One and one/half bottles Catsup
One Tablespoon Tabasco
Two bay leaves
One/half bottle chili sauce
One teaspoon dry mustard
One/half stick butter

Cook for one hour, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking

Add :
three tablespoons vinegar
Two cans small butter beans (or what you call baby lima beams)
Two cans cream style white corn
One can small English peas
Three small diced Irish potatoes
Box of frozen sliced okra (optional)

Cook Slowly Until Thick

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/j...ew-recipe.html

http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/fo...ck-stew-241201 note- calls for rabbit but you can substitute chicken.

this one serves 15-18 and uses any kind of meat, preferably smoked though

According to wikipedia, Claims of authenticity call for squirrel, opossum or rabbit meat, but chicken is most commonly used in modern versions.

Who invented Brunswick stew?
by American Food Roots on January 16, 2013 in 50 States, Georgia, My American Roots, Virginia


“Brunswick stew,” humorist Roy Blount Jr. reportedly quipped, “is what happens when small mammals carrying ears of corn fall into barbecue pits.”

Ggrand, I'll compromise with ya , we're both right! lol
