Southern Traditions: Brunswick Stew

One of my favorite Memorial Day traditions is the family cookout we have at my parents' house every year. Delicious food, wonderful conversation, and a flag football game in the backyard make the day absolutely perfect. This year, however, we are having to forgo the festivities due to our schedules, but I did find some time to make some smoky, southern Brunswick stew.

I used pulled pork from Trader Joe's and two boiled, shredded chicken breasts. Add in some chicken broth, frozen corn, frozen lima beans {optional}, and a little extra bar-b-que sauce {I used homemade. It tastes the best!}, and let it cook for about 20 minutes on med-low heat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

For homemade bar-b-que sauce:
Add together ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, dried mustard powder, onion powder, a splash of lemon juice, apple cider vinegar {optional}, and pepper to taste. Add in little bits of each ingredient until it tastes the way you like. I prefer a sweeter sauce, so I use more brown sugar in mine. You can also find a pretty simple recipe here.

Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend!

I'm so curious--how do you make homemade barbeque sauce?? Brunswick stew takes me right back to childhood memories . . . even though those days are long over, since I haven't eaten any meat in the past 15 years!

That looks delicious, A! You know I just found out that Brunswick stew is actually from Brunswick, GA. I always thought it was a New Englander thing. Hope you had a lovely weekend!
