Slow Cooker Brunswick Stew Recipe

Slow Cooker Brunswick Stew Recipe
Brunswick stew is a cold-weather thick stew that originated in the south – either Brunswick County, Virginia or Brunswick, Georgia. Both claim to have developed this delicious stew, and we’ll probably never know the truth. It is a great dish to put in the slow cooker and let cook all day. The original version, I’m told, was made from squirrel; other versions were made from game meats and possum. Nowadays chicken or pork are most popular, and sometimes it calls for more than one type of meat. While shopping, I checked out my grocery store and there was no squirrel or possum to be found. I knew I had some shredded pork at home from the Shredded Pork Module, so I thought I’d do a quick version of dump and cook. Slow Cooker Brunswick Stew is easy, since it calls for a few cans of things, as well as bags of frozen vegetables; very little hands-on time to get it in the slow cooker. This version is quite thick and needs only some good cornbread as an accompaniment.
