Brunswick Stew (My Version - Hot Pot Cooker)

by Brad
(Las Vegas (Nevada, not New Mexico))

There is a book of recipes that features pictures of cans with plus signs and simple directions. The recipes are designed for men, and I believe the book is called...

"A Man, A Can and a Plan"

One time I made a type of Brunswick Stew for my crew that was a big hit, and was drop dead simple. Today I made another batch, but this time, instead of a stove top burner running all day, I placed the ingredients in my Hot Pot Cooker and let it go 5 hours.

You add the following to the pot

- 32 oz Chicken Stock
- 15 oz Corn Nibblets
- 15 oz Lima Beans
- 28 oz Diced Tomatoes
- Peel and dice two potatoes (not shown)
- Add Diced Chicken/Pork Loin etc. (not shown)
- Season to taste (I like to add a few tablespoons of my favorite bottled salsa tomatillo, for spicy heat)

Set it, check on the shadow every hour, makes a ton of soup. Great when you're wondering what to cook for a large gathering. It tastes very fresh, and yes, I simply dump the cans with the water, into the pot. Enjoy.


Thank you Brad,

It does look very easy, and it sounds perfect for the Hot Pot Solar Cooker.

We make a similar dish called "Taco Soup" and it turns our great in the Hot Pot.

I'm sure there are a lot of people that have very similar recipes, Minestrone is a good example. What's great about them, is that by adding cooked chicken or pork (some Southern versions of this recipe also include rabbit), you can clean out your fridge. You can also have a vegetarian version without the meat addition at the end.
