How to Make Brunswick Stew
This Brunswick Stew is very simple to make. Start with browning some smoked sausage in a Dutch oven. Once the sausage is browned, add the remaining ingredients bring to a boil and simmer for about 30 minutes to an hour. SO easy!
I used rotisserie chicken for the cooked chicken in this Brunswick Stew. It makes prep super quick! For the pulled pork, I used Costco pulled pork. You can use any cooked pulled pork you like. With or without BBQ sauce – either is fine.
If you are making this Brunswick Stew after the holidays, feel free to swap the chicken for some leftover turkey. This is a delicious way to use up some of that leftover turkey!
Make Brunswick Stew in the Slow Cooker
You can make this Brunswick Stew in the crockpot instead of the stovetop. Brown the sausage and dump everything in the crockpot. Cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours. You can also cook it on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours.
Can Brunswick Stew be Frozen?
The leftover Brunswick Stew makes a great freezer meal. Cook the stew and let it cool. Pour the soup into some gallon freezer ziplock bags and freeze. When you are ready to serve the soup, thaw and reheat in the microwave or on the stove.
