Slow Cooker Kentucky Burgoo

Submitted by: CHEF_MEG
Slow Cooker Kentucky Burgoo

Introduction

This spring time stew is a must have at any Derby party! Traditionally made with pork, beef, chicken, and rabbit, I've added more veggies and lightened the meat. The best part: This is a slow cooker recipe, so the burgoo will be ready when the horses are loading into the gate.

After 5-6 hours, add the lima beans and corn, stir and cook for another 30 minute to an hour.

Combine the cornstarch with 1/4 cup water, then add to the stew, stir and cook 10 more minutes with the lid off before serving.

Serve with hot sauce to taste.

    Loved it. I suggest adding the sweet potatoes about 1 hour into cooking if they are bite size. And add corn starch and water about 30 minutes before finishing the cooking. Other than that, I really enjoyed the recipe. Oh, and only use 2 onions. - 5/30/12

    Easy to make. Substitute scallions or sweet onions or leeks for the yellow onions if you are concerned about onion overload. - 4/3/12

    I made this stew today and i love it. I though that 3 medium onion was going to make it strong but it doesn't. I will be making this again. - 3/14/12

    I made the recipe as printed except my can of tomatoes had salt. It was just OK; bland to my tastes. Most Burgoo recipes include Worcester Sauce. vinegar or lemon juice (acid!) and salt which i will add next time to boost flavor. Maybe shredded cabbage too. - 10/22/12

    Made for church supper (hot sauce on side for Lutherans) w/sweet potatoes; substituted a mix of home-cooked beans (Lima, navy, black) & added a few tablespoons of barley.Therefore,did not use thickener. Excellent flavor & nutrition, works even on a paper plate if you have enough vegetables. - 12/5/12

    The family loves it, and it's a perfect tummy-warmer in the winter. We also used black beans instead of limas, and we serve it with some whole grain seedy bread. SO good! - 11/2/12

    My family loves this one! We don't like sweet potato so I substited yukon gold potatoes and green peas for the lima beans. We like things spicey so I also increased the chili flakes. I will definitely be making this again! - 9/14/12

    I loved this recipe. My husband and I added Franks Hot Sauce right before eating... I like somewhat spicy but he likes hot so adding after serving is best. Very tasty and filling! - 8/18/12

    I used peas instead of corn and took out the lima beans, also used the pre-minced garlic in the jar instead. My crock pots cooked this way faster than the recommended 5 hours, meat was totally cooked at 2 hours and I added veggies then and cooked for one more hour on the lowest possible setting - 7/21/12

    My husband and I enjoyed this! I'm not usually a fan of pork, but it worked well in this dish -- very tender! A great blend of flavors that is different from the norm. We subbed black beans for the limas. Very easy, we'll make this again! - 7/17/12
