My experience with Brunswick Stew is practically non-existent. Sure, I’ve seen it offered as a main dish or a side at barbecue restaurants but I never did order it choosing instead to order baked beans and slaw – typically! And I was happy!
But alas, when I was working at the Department of Revenue, my cubemate Barbie, brought a pot of this Brunswick Stew to work one day to share with everyone. On my goodness, it is so delicious. Suffice it to say I was hooked.
Now, I still haven’t ordered it at a restaurant but choose instead to make Barbie’s version at home. It is very delicious and is a great accompaniment to anything you barbecue this summer. Of course, as a main dish it shines as well and it is especially wonderful if you have a few guests over for that Saturday afternoon barbecue!
