    Super easy and yummy! Didn't even chop up an onion or green pepper. Just used some potatoes o'brien.

    Great recipe, got a round of appalause from the family. Substituted an extra 1 cup of bbq pork for the frozen okra and added a little extra chicken broth. Delicious!

    This was definitely not my favorite brunswick stew recipe. It lacked some flavor. It also over-flowed in my slow cooker since it was so full and was cooked on high. Not terrible if you add some chipotle tobasco to each bowl though.

    I made this for our Bible study group and it was a HUGE hit! Everyone wanted the recipe. It made enough for a group of 16 adults. I made it a day in advance and it was much better the second day.

    This has become our cool or cold weather staple. Have used this recipe for many years and always pleased with it. Make fresh baked cornbread in a black iron skillet to go with it and the meal is complete.

    Everyone loved this. I did leave out the okra since I already knew that my family wouldn't touch it. I've made it several times now.

    This was very good! I added extra spices and some garlic to the stew, but other than that followed the recipe exactly.

    We thought this was easy, delicious & tasty. Did make couple of changes. Added more barbeque pork (1 - 2 cups) also left out tomato sauce and added extra can diced fire-roasted tomates and used frozen vegetables (no canned) and 1/4 t red pepper instead of black. Let cook in slow cooker 5 hrs. on low. Wonderful!!

    I love this recipe- such a great thing to come home to on a cold day. I make a slow cooker BBQ and root beer pulled pork (I've used both pork shoulder and tenderloin, and we can't tell a difference except that the loin is leaner) the day before and shred the meat. Then I can add remaining ingredients to a slow cooker, pop in the fridge, and take out the morning after to heat slowly throughout the day. I've found by using the BBQd pork, I have yet to meet a man, soup-haters included, who didn't devour this recipe. Makes a lot and reheats well. I recommend for wives with picky-eating husbands and kids who have a hard time with vegetables. Bon appetit!

    This was so easy to make. I didn't make it in the slow cooker, instead I put it in the oven on 325 for 2 hours. I also used O'Brien potatoes which eliminated the need for the onions and green peppers. We are not a fan of okra, so I used green beans instead. This will be a perm staple for winter meals. Yummy!!

    Everyone loves this stew, even okra haters! To save time buy pulled pork with sauce in the refrigerated section at your local grocers.
