This slow cooker Brunswick stew has everything but the kitchen sink

Print this recipe
This dish is a Southern classic and a true "everything but the kitchen sink" meal. To make it you'll combine over 15 different ingredients in a slow cooker for a low-and-slow dish packed full of protein and vegetables, with enough to feed a hungry bunch. Tender shredded chicken and smoky pulled pork marry together with traditional low-country vegetables like lima beans, corn and okra to create a stew unlike any other you'll find across America.
The recipe below calls for frozen vegetables as a time and money-saver, but feel free to use fresh ones if you have them on hand. The beauty of this recipe is that all the ingredients are thrown in the Crock-Pot together, so cleanup is a breeze. Try this recipe, and you'll realize you don't have to be from the South to enjoy a hot bowl of Brunswick stew!
