Brunswick Stew

I love serving suppers with a theme…and for some reason, Brunswick Stew sounds kind of Halloween-y to me, so this is a meal I would make in October.  This would also be the perfect dinner to make before you head out to trick or treat.  It’s a simple slow cooker supper, so all you do is pile the ingredients in and then enjoy later that night…with very little mess to clean up.  So easy!

My kids were big fans of this dinner because it’s full of pulled pork, and I was a fan because of it’s simplicity.  Win, win.

Brunswick Stew.

Yeah, you should make this in October.

This meals serves four to six.

Shopping List
1 (2 pound pork tenderloin)
1 onion, chopped
1 (8 oz) can of tomato sauce
1 (14 oz) can of diced tomatoes
1 cup of BBQ sauce
1 cup of chicken stock
1 (14 oz) can of creamed corn
1 cup of frozen lima beans
2 cups of frozen peas and carrots mixture
1 cup of frozen corn

In your slow cooker, add in the first seven ingredients.  Cover and cook on low 8 to 10 hours or on high 4 to 5 hours.

About 30 minutes before you’re ready to serve, remove lid and shred the pork right inside the slow cooker using two forks.  After the pork is shredded, stir in your frozen veggies.  Cover again and cook on high the next 30 minutes.

Remove lid and ladle soup into bowls.

You can use any combination of frozen veggies you like!  If your family prefers all peas and carrots, then just use that.  Mix and match it!

Halloween’s a comin’!

    I am so excited about this recipe! I have been looking for a simple crockpot Brunswick stew recipe and hadn't found one that sounded practical yet. I am a working Mom and your recipes have been a lifesaver in my household. I love getting dinner on the table fast. Thanks so much!

    Hi, I love your recipes and I often "mix and match" them with some of my own. How do you think this recipe would work with Chicken instead of the pulled pork? Would you take anything out or add anything to it?

      It would be delicious! Chicken is a great substitute!

    Shay!! This was so good and easy to make. Perfect for fall football Saturdays! Chicken substitution would be a great alternative for my grandson's mommy who is allergic to pork!
