BRUNSWICK STEW

Brunswick StewThis Brunswick Stew makes a hearty meal with some cornbread.  You can make this with just about any kind of meat. (chicken, pork, beef and even wild meats or a combination of several different meats) I used to make this stew with deer meat years ago when my children were small and we lived on the farm  This keeps several days refrigerated and freezes well, too. It is a great stew to make on a camping trip or in the fall of the year for a hay ride or gathering.

1  to 2 lbs. stew meat or meat of your choice

2 tablespoons butter or margarine

1/2 cup chopped onion

1 medium green pepper, chopped

1 (14.5 ounce) can beef broth (If I make this with chicken, I use chicken broth instead of the beef broth)

1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes

1 1/2 cups water

1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste

1/2 cup barbecue sauce (your favorite)(can add more barbecue sauce to suit your taste)

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon liquid smoke (Optional)

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon salt

few drops hot sauce or pinch cayenne

1 cup frozen lima beans (could use canned)

1 cup frozen corn(could use fresh or canned)

1 cup frozen okra (could use fresh)

3 medium potatoes, peeled and diced

Melt butter in large stew pot or dutch oven.  Brown meat, onion and green peppers in butter.   Add remaining ingredients, bring to boil, turn to simmer and cook about an hour or until potatoes are done.  Makes about 3 quarts. Enjoy!

Note:  You can double or triple the recipe if cooking for a large crowd. This stew could also be made in the crock pot. Just cook the meat first and add remaining ingredients. Cook on high about 4 to 5 hours and low 7 to 8 hours.

1 tablespoon dried parsley

5 cups unpeeled thinly sliced zucchini (Can use yellow squash instead of zucchini or a mixture of both)

1 package onion soup mix

CROCKPOT BEEF STEW

 

Crock Pot Beef Stew

This crock pot beef stew is the perfect comfort food on a cold day.  Just add some cornbread muffins for a meal.

1 to 1 1/2 pounds of lean beef, chuck or stew meat, cut in bite-sized pieces
1/2 cup flour
3 tablespoons cooking oil or bacon drippings
3 or 4 carrots, cut in pieces
4 or 5 medium potatoes, peeled and cut in chunks
3 stalks of celery, cut in inch sized pieces
1 medium onion, peeled and cut in pieces
1 cup frozen peas, Optional
4 cups beef broth or 2 (14.5 ounce cans)
1 (14.5 ounce) can beef gravy
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
Pinch of cayenne
Few drops of hot sauce, Optional
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
2 bay leaves
 
Dredge the stew meat in the flour and brown in oil on top of the stove. (Keep any leftover flour to thicken stew, if needed)  Add meat to crock pot along with carrots,  potatoes, celery, onion,  and peas. Mix together beef broth, beef gravy,  salt, pepper, cayenne, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder and mushroom soup with a wire whisk.  Pour over meat and vegetables in the crock pot, add bay leaves and cook on high 4 hours or low 8 hours or until vegetables are done. (If you want a thicker gravy remove some of the liquid about 25 minutes before serving, add a couple tablespoons of the leftover flour from dredging the meat and return to crock pot to thicken the gravy). Remove bay leaves.   Makes 8 to 10 servings.
Enjoy!
