1/2 - pound porkbutt, cut into 1" cubes
1 1/2 - pounds chicken leg/thigh quarters
1 - quart beef stock
1 - quart chicken stock, plus 2-4 quarts more
1 - cup unpeeled red potatoes, medium diced
1 - cup red onion, medium diced
1 - cup lima beans (frozen are OK)
1 - cup diced green peppers
1 - cup diced, peeled carrots
1 - cup corn kernels (frozen are OK)
1 - oz. Ancho chilies, toasted, seeded, stemmed and cut into small pieces (I just buy the dried ones)
1/2 - tsp. cayenne
1 1/2 - tsp. kosher salt
3/4 - tsp. pepper
1 - cup sliced okra
4 - large garlic cloves , minced (more to taste)
2 - cup canned chopped tomatoes
2 - tbls. cider vinegar
2 - tbls. lemon juice
3 - tbls. Kentucky Bourbon, more to taste
12 - tbls. Worcestershire Sauce
1 - tbls. hot sauce
1/2 - cup parsley, chopped
Serves 14. Cut excess fat from chicken legs, leaving skin intact. Combine lamb, pork and chicken in large stockpot with beef and chicken stock. Bring to a full boil and skim any froth or gray foam from the top. Reduce the heat and simmer for 2 hours. Remove the chicken legs and let cool. Remove skin and bones, shred chicken meat and return to pot. Add potatoes, onions, beans, green pepper, carrots, corn chiles, cayenne, salt and pepper. Simmer another 3 hours, adding 2-4 quarts of chicken stock, as needed, to keep stew from getting too thick. After 3 hours add okra, garlic, tomatoes, vinegar, lemon juice, bourbon, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce. Simmer another 6 hours, adding chicken stock if necessary. Add parsley after burgoo is cool. Finished burgoo should have a soup, not stew consistency and must cook 12 hours. Can be started one day, cooled, refrigerated and finished the next day. Tastes best if refrigerated overnight to mellow the flavors and it makes the removing of fat easier. Note: There really isn't much work involved. Just stir it once in awhile and maybe add a little more stock if it seems to need it. Burgoo is traditional at Kentucky barbecues and fundraisers.
