WOW!!!!! Was this delicious!!! I needed a crock pot recipe for the day and found this one. I put it together the night before in the crock pot dish and put it in the refrigerator over night, then in the morning I put it in the crockpot and turned it on and VOILA, when I came home the house smelled WONDERFUL, and soooo comforting on a cold day. It was the perfect dinner. Thanks for posting!!!!

I also used one onion and added celery in place of okra. Delicious recipe! Thanx, Bev!

This was a great stew! I used cut up chicken breasts and I had to make it without the Okra but it sure didn't take away the great taste of the stew. It's a little hard to find things like here but when I do I'll get some for the next time I make it. Thanks for super little recipe.

Wonderful Stew! The only thing different that I did was use one large onion instead of the three and I added all my veggies at once also..used skinless chicken breast strips in mine....Was yummy and hearty! Thanks for a great recipe Bev!!

A marvelous stew... a marvelous meal. Only substitution I made was adding celery instead of okra. (I had no okra on hand, and an abundance of celery)... This one will definitely be a family favorite from this day onward. Trust me, I won't lose this recipe! Thanks, Bev, for posting a super winter day's meal!

This is the greatest recipe. Just put it in the pot and let it go. The aroma drifting through the house is almost more than you can stand. I did put it all in the crock pot at the same time though. I was afraid that the veggies would not be cooked as well as I like them if I added them toward the end. I recommend this to everyone. Thanks Bev.

Nice version of a long-time winter staple in our home. So close to ours I will merely add a few comments rather than post such a close version. My grandmother DID make her Brunswick stew from squirrel & country ham & all the vegetables were put up from her huge garden - hence no garlic nor any of the other odd ingredients I have seen (ketchup, BBQ sauce, gravy mix, etc). I use country or "city" ham - depending on what I've got & use frozen baby limas but canned corn - sweet & crispy. We also add an equal measure of green peas. We use a quart of canned tomatoes & sometimes toss in some chopped potato. Oh, We serve pickled peppers on the table so folks can spice up their serving as much as they please. Serve with eastern (sweet) or western (straight cornmeal w/o white flour or sugar) cornbread or biscuits -that's good healthy country eating at its best! Thank you Bev for posting a traditional down east NC favorite!

Wonderful and easy. Prepared the night before and popped into the crockpot the next morning. Adjusted the seasonings to suit our Louisian taste. Will be fixing again. Thank you! Margie

Easy and a hit with the whole family. We did add extra sauce and about 1 Tbs of ketchup (I know others said that was inauthentic but it just makes it taste soo good!). The extra flavoring made this one a repeater!
