    Lauren H's Note:

    Georgians and Virginians both claim that this stew originated in their respective town of Brunswick and Brunswick County. I may be a born and raised Virginia girl, but I'm offering this classic recipe for all of you to try. I've adapted it from vol. 2 of my Gourmet Slow-Cooker - you can throw it all in a crock pot, or follow my second step of browning for added flavor. Serve with a lighter red wine, like Tempranillo, Pinot Noir, or even a Cabernet Franc, and enjoy!
