Burgoo Stew in pot

Burgoo Stew


Units Scale
  • 2 pounds chicken breast
  • 2 pounds roast beef
  • 2 pounds steak or sausage
  • 3 medium carrots
  • 3 minced garlic gloves
  • 2 celery ribs
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 large green pepper
  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 2 cups corn
  • 2 cups lima beans
  • 2 cups finely chopped cabbage
  • 64 oz. beef broth
  • 28 oz. of crushed tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 bay leaves


Dice and chop all the meat and vegetables; brown the meat and sauté the vegetables in olive oil.  Then put all ingredients into a large pot and add the broth. 

Add crushed tomatoes, salt, thyme, black pepper, Worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar, and bay leaves.

Simmer for at least two hours, add a side of cornbread or biscuits and your burgoo feast is ready. 


Remember, you can substitute any meat or vegetables for what your family likes.  Many burgoos call for cabbage, but if your family doesn’t care for that – leave it out!
