Easy Brunswick Stew--Elizabeth Craig

A very warm welcome home to Elizabeth!  We're thrilled to have her back today.  She has a new quilting series coming out in June.  I've had the honor of reading Quilt or Innocence, and it's wonderful.  You'll love the Southern women she writes about! 

And now -- Elizabeth!

Hi y’all! I’m excited to be back visiting at Mystery Lovers’ Kitchen today and catching up with all my friends! While I'm here, I think I'll pick up some more recipe ideas, too. :)

I thought I’d share a really easy and hearty version of Brunswick stew that I think you’re going to love. It’s one of those recipes that everyone in my family eats and it really fills them up on dreary winter days.

And, it also fills them up on warm spring days! Because we’ve been having a lot of those lately…but they enjoy the stew too much to take it off my rotation. :)

You can switch it up a little bit, too—you can use lima beans instead of green peas, for instance (limas make it much more of a traditional Brunswick stew…but I had green peas in the house, so that’s what’s thrown in!) The brown sugar gives it a wonderful sweet taste that
complements the other ingredients well.

Sometimes I’ll make it in the crockpot, too, and just leave the house while it cooks. That’s easy to do—just brown the meat beforehand, add all the ingredients, then set the pot to low for hours.

Tasty Brunswick Stew

1 lb. ground chuck 8 oz white chicken (I use the frozen,grilled chicken strips…defrost and chop)
1 cup pulled pork
1/2 chopped medium onion
8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 can creamed corn
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can green peas or lima beans
1 large can crushed tomatoes
1/2 cup water (more, if you want your stew thinner)
1 1/2 cups ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 T Worcestershire sauce
Couple of dashes of Tabasco

Brown ground chuck with the onion. Drain. Add all the ingredients to soup pot. Cook on low heat for an hour. Serve with cornbread.

Hope you’ll enjoy it, too!
