Easy Kentucky Burgoo

Well we had our first real snow day yesterday.  They had been talking about it for several days now so I was prepared.  I decided to surprise my husband with one of his favorite things from Mark's Feed Store in Louisville, Burgoo.  If you are ever in Louisville be sure and check out Mark's Feed Store.  Great BBQ and even better onion straws.

This is in the same category as Brunswick Stew.  It is a nice thick soup.
If you can find frozen gumbo mix use that.
Start with 6 cups beef broth or a combination of beef and vegetable broth.
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
I used about a pound of stew meat cut into small pieces. Simmer the broth and beef for about 30 minutes or so.
A package of frozen onions and bell peppers.  You could use fresh if you have them.
3 cups frozen corn
3 cups frozen okra.  These are the three things that are in frozen gumbo mix.
After the beef has cooked for a while add the chicken.  I had cooked chicken that needed to be used.  If you use uncooked chicken put it in the pot at the same time as the beef.
Let this simmer for another 20 minutes or so.
After the 20 minutes add 6 oz of tomato paste
Then add the veggies.
Stir well.  Add some salt and pepper.  Let simmer for about 20 minutes or so.
Then plate.

Easy Kentucky Burgoo Recipe
1 pound stew meat
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
3 cups frozen corn
3 cups frozen okra
1 pkg frozen peppers and onions
1 6oz can tomato paste

Or you can use 2 16 oz pkg frozen gumbo mix instead of the corn, okra, peppers, and onions.
