I love Meatless Mondays. I should have brought them back sooner, although I will probably alternate months that they appear. This week I decided to try something I know Mr. H likes but a vegan version of it: Vegan Brunswick Stew.
I don’t personally know much about Brunswick Stew. It’s not really something I’ve really eaten before. But it’s always fun to try something new. And lucky for me, I have a great friend with a similar palate to mine who made this recipe. (So all credit to her for this recipe, link at bottom for original!)
Vegan Brunswick Stew Reactions?
Mr. H actually really liked this version of Brunswick Stew. And I have to say, I liked it a lot as well. Mr. H said that it would also taste really good with some beef thrown in (he’s a serious carnivore, what can I say?) Despite that comment, he still really enjoyed it, enough to have seconds. Ok, I had seconds too. This really is a delicious recipe, and I’m so glad I tried it.
I’m no longer going to blog about recipes that did not turn out well for us. So this recipe is obviously going on the list of things to make again. In fact, I only had one complaint, which had nothing to do with the recipe. It was all my fault for having a crappy barbecue sauce in the house.
That’s my one special note for this. Really be careful with the barbecue sauce you choose because it will be your entire flavor. We happened to have a cheap one open in the fridge that I used for this recipe attempt. Next time, I’ll make sure to have a better sauce on hand.
I made only one change in the recipe. I used my pressure cooker to make it instead of cooking it on the stove for several hours. (Originally, I intended to slow cook this all day long, but my blonde brain flaked on me and I forgot to start it early enough. My posted recipe will show the changes made to make this in the pressure cooker instead of making this on the stove.)
