This is outstanding. Have made it twice for large family gatherings, never one bite left, even though I MORE than double or triple the recipe. Easy to adapt to your liking. I actully used Costco brand pulled pork (no sauce on it). It's sold in a 2 lb package. I heated it in the microwave and degreased with paper towels. Added it with the rest, not later. Also used boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins. I add bell pepper with the onion, way more garlic and vegetables, as well as some thin BBQ sauce. The second time I made it a week ahead and froze it in gallon gallon ziplock bags. Thawed overnight and put in crockpot the day I served it. Wonderful recipe! Thanks!
So good! I, like the previous reviewer, did not have precooked brisket. However, I did have about a handful of precooked pulled pork from a recent takeout night. I added the pulled pork at the end instead of the brisket, and it was delicious! Any typle of pulled meat (pot roast, brisket, pork) would be perfect in this, or you can simply omit the extra meat and keep the chicken only. Any way you choose, it's great. Very easy to make, as well.
This is a great soup. I did not include the brisket because I didn't have it on hand (had everything else) and it was great. yes, I know that means it probably is not really brunswick stew, but very good regardless. I will make again.
