Brunswick Stew originated in 1828 in Brunswick County, Virginia. A thick stew including tomatoes, potatoes, Lima beans, corn, and onions, it was originally made with squirrel. Today, chicken is usually substituted for the squirrel.
I have a variation of this in the crock pot today. Subbed some already cooked roast beef for the stew beef, thyme for the italian seasoning, no peas, less onions and tomatoes, more broth, and added a bit of red wine and worchestire sauce.
