You'll just have to taste this dish to see why we call it our "Slow, Southern favorite." This Easy Brunswick Stew is a hands-off recipe that brings Southern goodness to the table every time!

What You'll Need:
  • 3 pounds boneless pork shoulder roast (Boston butt)
  • 3 medium-sized new potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 (18-ounce) bottle barbecue sauce
  • 1 (14-ounce) can chicken broth
  • 1 (9-ounce) package frozen baby lima beans, thawed
  • 1 (9-ounce) package frozen corn, thawed
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
What To Do:
  1. Trim excess fat from roast, and cut into 2-inch pieces.

  2. Stir together roast, potatoes, and remaining ingredients in a 6-quart slow cooker.

  3. Cover and cook on LOW setting 10 to 12 hours or until potatoes are fork-tender.  Remove roast with a slotted spoon, and shred with 2 forks.  Return shredded roast to slow cooker, and stir well.  Ladle stew into bowls.

Thanks for your comments about this recipe. It seems like most people agree that this is not a traditional Brunswick Stew, so I'm not going to bother saving this recipe (I didn't think barbecue sauce and all of that sugar sounded right to me. So now I'm intrigued and will have to google traditional Brunswick Stew to find a better recipe.

My fathers side of the family has been cookin Brunswick Stew as long as I've been around. 69 years. This AIN'T NO BRUNSWICK STEW!!! SORRY!

While I agree with the comments from JVP and drae, there are many variations on Brunswick Stew, some good, some not-so-good.

What you have here is not a recipe for Brunswick stew at all. The original recipe calls for squirrel, with chicken being the modern substitute. The recipe also needs carrots and Fordhook (not baby) limas. I always put a little sugar in mine to counteract the acid in the tomatoes, but 6 tablespoons? Brunswick stew isn't a dessert. I also have to say thank you, thank you to drae for his/her comment. Barbecue sauce is never used in Brunswick stew!

Sorry, but you do not put barbecue sauce in Brunswick Stew. Also, where is the chicken? Broth won't cut it.
