Brunswick stew is the ultimate comfort food. Perfect for the homebody in need of some TLC during these unnerving times, a quality Brunswick stew will do just the trick. 

The dish originated from the South, but there’s no definitive statement that says which state created it. Brunswick County in Virginia and Brunswick in Georgia have both claimed to have invented the recipe, but it’s also an ancient Indigenous traditional dish that debuted long before these arguments ever took place. 

If you want to make the original Brunswick stew, you’ll need to do some hunting first, as the original recipe uses game, usually squirrel meat. It also calls for corn that’s simmered for hours over an open fire.

Today, there are several variations of the traditional dish that’s commonly made with chicken and various meats like rabbit, beef, and pork. There might be a vegetarian or vegan option out there, but that’s a whole different story.

You could, theoretically, make a stew out of the fixings, which are onions, corn, tomatoes, lima beans, peas, okra, and barbecue sauce, but that savory broth from the chosen meat is what makes this dish so rich and flavorful.

As noted above, there are many variations of the Brunswick stew, but we’ve decided to tie in our favorite recipe, being the Southern variation, courtesy of The Spruce Eats. The recipe below feeds 10, and it calls for a stockpot or Dutch oven. You’ll also need bacon drippings, so whip up some fresh bacon that morning and make sure to save that grease!
