My Daddy was well know around town for a couple of his recipes. The first is his secret BBQ sauce recipe. When he passed away over 11 years ago many folks were afraid that recipe had gone with him. But much to their delight I make the sauce in his absence. I get calls on a regular basis from one person or another asking for a batch of sauce which I happily make. It always fills my heart with joy as I watch it simmer, remembering my Dad standing in the kitchen cooking away. My Dad loved to cook…and he loved to go to the grocery store. I think I inherited both of those traits. Oh, sorry, I got off track, I was telling you about the 2 recipes he was well known for. The second recipe was his Brunswick Stew. We all knew Fall had arrived when we would come home and the house would be filled with the aroma of his fabulous stew simmering away.
The funny thing is, I was in the grocery store getting the ingredients to make this recipe and I ran into an old family friend. As we stood there talking and catching up on our families, etc the conversation turned to what I was doing these days. When I explained a little about what I do and that I was at the store that day to get the ingredients to make one of my Dad’s recipes to put on my blog her first statement was “I hope it is his Brunswick Stew!” and then “when will I be able to get the recipe?” Well, you are all getting it today! And it is perfect timing since it is 44 degrees outside this morning and I myself NEED something warm and comforting.
You just dump all the ingredients into a pot and simmer for about an hour
throw all the ingredients in a crockpot and cook on low for at least 4 hours (but can cook for 8).
…serve and enjoy!
Daddy’s Brunswick Stew
1 can whole kernel white corn
3 cans diced tomatoes
1 can lima beans
1 can BBQ pork
1 can BBQ beef
1 14 oz. can chunk chicken
Throw it all in a pot, stir it all together and simmer for 1 hour. Or you can place all the ingredients into a slow cooker and cook for at least 4 hours or up to 8 hours.
Yes, it really is that easy. And the taste is to die for. You are going to love me once you make this dish and serve it with a side of crusty bread.
