Nothing says comfort food like a nice big bowl of hearty Brunswick Stew! This traditional dish is famous in the south, so famous that there is a battle brewing over what state it belongs to. Brunswick, Georgia and Brunswick County, Virginia both lay claim to this rich stew. To find out more about this delicious feud, read this Southern Living Article.
The good people of both the town of Brunswick, Georgia, and Brunswick County, Virginia, equally and passionately claim to be the point of origin for the eponymous stew.
Some decades ago, Brunswick, Georgia, mounted a 25-gallon iron pot atop a town monument. The inscription declares the pot to be the very one in which the very first Brunswick stew did bubble on July 2, 1898.
In 1988, the Virginia General Assembly issued a decree naming Brunswick County the home of Brunswick stew, claiming they can trace their stew back to 1828.

I do realize that it is hot outside but in my house we eat soups and stews year round. The good thing is that this is made in the Slow Cooker so your house can stay nice and cool.
This is also good with rice so put that in your rice cooker and set it to be ready at dinner time!
A hearty meal does not have to be difficult! This really is as simple as stirring everything together and letting the slow cooker do the work. The house will smell amazing and everyone will want to eat as soon as they come in the door.
