There are many burnswick stew recipes and this is probally no different. It was a request from someone so here it is but she really did not have a recipe I just learned by my Mother how to make it as she could best remember her mothers recipe. As a child I remembered it being cooked outdoors in a cast iron kettle over a fire all day long for special family get togethers. My daddy loved it and we made it for our July 4th gatherings to go with the bar-b-que chicken or pig. Hope I can make a recipe for you to follow. Just mostly you have to taste for the finished product in our house.

Directions Step-By-Step

This is a all day long recipe. In a large stock pot boil the pork and chicken season water with salt and pepper. Let stew till the meat is falling off the bones. Dip up out of the broth and set a side.
Add in all the tomatoes excecpt the paste thats for the very last if it needs thicker. Add in the potatoes, bean, let cook till beans and potatoes are tender. Add in the vinegar, brown sugar and worchestershire. Also the dried red peppper.
Remove the meat from all bones and just take your hands down into the bowl with the meat and begin to mash with you hands till mashed up fine. Add to the pot with the corn and just let cook. About 3 hrs slowly. Keep stirring the pot don't let it stick to the bottom, the potatoes should stew all down to just about nothing sometimes you might see one chunk in it or a couple but the potatoe is to make it thick. Taste when you think it seems done and adjust the flavor for your taste. I like it sweet and a bite of sour.
