    ratherbeswimmin''s Note:

    Burgoo is a stew made with a variety of meats and vegetables and is a Kentucky tradition, often cooked in large pots and for events and barbecues on open fires. Who knows the origin of the word burgoo, it could be from a mispronunciation of the word barbecue to a mispronunciation of bird stew, but the origin remains a mystery. This recipe makes enough to feed an army and when my entire family gets together, that's about what we've got. My husband makes this for his hunting buddies. Adapted from Southern Living.

      I wanted to rate this before trying the recipe only because my husband tried Kentucky Burgoo for the first time when we took a trip to Bardstown about a year ago. He likes meaty soups and since it was a rather cold evening, and per the suggestion of our waitress, my DH took a chance on trying something new (which he hardly ever does!) and boy was he happy with the decision to try the Burgoo!! He gave me a taste and, in the words of Rachel Ray ... YUMMMO!! The flavor was unbelieveable -- very similar to a beefy stew but the flavor lingers with every bite! It was even better with yeast rolls -- great for soaking up the "stew". We certainly plan on giving this recipe a try; if it's anything like what we had at the Old Talbott Tavern in Bardstown, KY you can be sure we'll be sure to use this recipe again and again.
