Traditionally made with beef, pork, chicken and rabbit, I leave the rabbit out, but you may add it. I love a hearty stew anytime of the year! This is wonderful served with thick slices of warm Italian bread. Sometimes I serve it over hot cooked rice. A one-dish meal! Enjoy!

How to Make Crock Pot Kentucky Stew (Burgoo)


  1. Using 3 Tbsp. oil, brown cubed beef and cubed pork until browned. Place in the bottom of a crock pot.
  2. Place cubed chicken on top of beef and pork.
  3. Add onions, carrots, celery, garlic, tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, seasonings, chicken broth and cubed sweet potato to the crock pot. Stir to combine. Cover and cook on HIGH for 5 hours.
  4. After 5 hours, add peas or lima beans and corn. Mix cornstarch with cold water until dissolved; pour into the crock pot. Stir. (I like to heat the corn and peas up in the microwave before add them to the stew.)
  5. Cover and cook on HIGH for another hour.
  6. Serve with Hot Sauce on the side.
