this recipe is delicious. as a native of the south carolina low country i have long been looking for a brunswick stew recipe that could rival my grandmother's. this is it. i made a few changes. i used 5 slices of salt pork instead of 3. i used 2 table spoons of tomato paste and 2 table spoons of apple cider vinegar in lieu of the catchup. and i used 4 tablespoons of worcestershire sauce and less salt. the end product was delicious. and the stew only gets better with age...make it and save it.
