Georgia Brunswick Stew and Hot Flour Tortillas

The Brunswick stew recipe belongs to a very talented smoking friend named Saiko. He was kind enough to share his recipe with fellow smokers and I wanted to give it a try.
I loved it! :)

The original recipe calls for

2 lb. chopped BBQ meat (I used some smoked pork tenderloin)
2 TBSP of your favorite rub (I used HeadCountry)
2 28oz cans whole tomatoes, including the juice ( I used my home canned tomatoes)
2 11oz cans shoepeg corn (I used grilled sweet corn)
1 1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup your favorite BBQ sauce (I used Billy Sim's Hot BBQ sauce)
2 cups water
1 tsp black pepper
2 tsp salt
1/2 to 1 tsp cayenne
1 tsp hot sauce ( I used cholula)
1 stick butter

I cut the recipe in half and made a small pot full...

While the stew simmered on the stove, I made a batch of flour tortillas to go along with it..

I mix 2 cups of flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

Mix well then add

1 Tablespoon of lard (or shortening)

Mix well then add

1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of warm water

Mix and form into ball, let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes

Pinch off a piece of dough and roll or hand pat out flat ... into a 6 or 7 inch round....

Fry on a dry griddle a few minutes on each side.....

Store the tortillas in a baggie while cooking the rest. They will stay pliable and tender.....

I love hot tortillas slathered with butter!

Roll up and eat one... I did save some for the stew though. :)

The stew was tasty! Had a nice kick to it from the cayenne, cholupa and hot BBQ sauce. Also had a nice smoked flavor from the pork. I loved it and will be making it again!

Thanks Gene! It was tasty, I like the fact that you can make it as hot or mild as you like. Plus use up leftover smoked meat.

Hope you are having fun with the silage.....don't fall off the hill! lol
