Amelia’s Slow Cooker Brunswick Stew

This week I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes for a hearty slow cooker Brunswick stew, perfect for cooler weather. It’s easy to make and will fill your house with the most amazing aroma! This recipe is great because it can be made in advance and frozen, or eaten right away. And if you’re looking for an extra boost of protein, try throwing in some chicken chunks instead of ground beef. The possibilities are endless with this crockpot dish!
