Brunswick Stew from The Blue Willow Inn Bible of Southern Cooking

My husband loved Sonny’s  and really loved their Brunswick Stew (not all Sonny’s have it). I never made it at home, but when I saw this quick and easy recipe I decided to make it. I can’t imagine any restaurant making it with just canned ingredients, but I like quick and easy.

Brunswick Stew
2 (15-ounce) cans stewed tomatoes
2 (15-ounce) cans creamed corn
2 (13-ounce) cans chicken
2 (10-ounce) cans BBQ pork
1 (14-ounce) bottle ketchup
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper

Combine all ingredients in slow cooker and cook on low for two to three hour

Serve with Jiffy cornbread  or Ritz crackers

Since this was made with canned ingredients my expectations weren’t that high. Plus, it uses a 14 oz. bottle of ketchup. I like ketchup, but…

I was really surprised at how good it was. Even my son Anthony said it was pretty good, and he’s never been a fan of any kind of stew.

It couldn’t have been any easier. Open some cans and measure in some salt, pepper, garlic powder, and apple cider vinegar. Heat. Voila.

I was going to use my slow cooker but decided at the last minute to make it and it would have taken too long, so I just did it on the stove, and we loved how it turned out. I also used saltine crackers because that’s what I had on hand.

I plan on making this again. Quick, easy, and yummy!

I just wish my husband was still here so he could try it 🙁

  1. This sounds scrumptious and satisfying. Thank you so much for sharing, and warm greetings from Montreal, Canada.

  2. Sounds interesting, glad you liked it. Never seen canned chicken or BBQ pork. I like ketchup but that does seem like a lot.

  3. Don’t really like the idea of canned meat – which is silly since I am ok with canned fish. Have a great week. Cheers from Carole’s Chatter

  4. I’ve made that before – it’s not too bad.

  5. Like Bill, I’m curious about BBQ pork in a can (though I’ve seen canned chicken). I’d try this on a cold winter day.

  6. I’m glad this turned out good for you. I think I would have been hesitant because of the canned meats.

  7. We went to Sonny’s quite a bit and they have the Brunswick stew here, in the Tallahassee area. I’m glad you liked it, it’s always nice when a new recipe turns out.

  8. My expectations wouldn’t have been high either but now you’ve got me curious! I’ve started making lunch for my husband to take to work and he really likes soup. I like how easy this is and that it’s a winner. I’m saving this recipe for future use. Thanks for sharing!

  9. I like easy recipes where you can just open cans and dump. Some days we need recipes like that. Glad this was a hit. I need to look for canned barbequed pork. Not sure we have that here. This cookbook looks like it has some good, easy recipes! Thanks for reviewing it!

  10. I can’t believe I have never had Brunswick Stew.

  11. The stew sounds delicious.

  12. This dish, and this cookbook, sound lovely, Vicki! I’m glad you enjoyed it. Thank you for taking the time to post the recipe.

  13. The list of ingredients doesn’t inspire me (I don’t like creamed corn and I’ve never seen BBQ pork in a can!) but I’m intrigued by how the combination ended up working out! I’m on the lookout for slow cooker recipes.

  14. I will have to try this! I love stews. My granddaughter is not a fan so I will probably have to eat it all by myself.

  15. Sounds perfect for a rainy weekend. I’m visiting from Souper Sunday

  16. I’ve read about Brunswik Stew but I’ve never tried it.
    Thanks for sharing with Souper Sundays this week. 😉

  17. Yummy, nice food for weekend. Thank you for sharing.

  18. Really unusual recipe. I would have been skeptical, too. But, sometimes surprises are great! Stopped by from Souper Sunday.
