    "Gonga" Birchmore's Brunswick Stew
    "Brunswick stew" is a dish that is as varied as bar-b-que. Nobody makes it quite the same. This is my great grandmother's [basic] recipe. (It was hand written in her cookbook, circa 1880s. At this time, she lived in Comer, Georgia, not far from Athens.) A stew like this cries out for variations. Be creative! The main thing to remember about this recipe is to use "used" meat. In other words, leftover cooked meats, whether they be fried, baked, broiled or roasted. The blending of flavors of the leftover meats is what gives it such a unique flavor. Do NOT, however, use seafood of any kind in this dish.
  • Leftover pork, beef, chicken (enough to make 3 to 4 cups of meat) (note: the original recipe called for squirrel, rabbit, venison, doves, quail, or whatever "game" was available)
  • 2 cans tomatoes (14-16 oz each)
  • 1 can whole kernel yellow corn
  • 2 large or 3 medium Idaho potatoes
  • 2 medium onions (Great Granny didn't use Vidalias, but I sure do!)
  • 1 can baby lima beans (14 to 16 oz)
  • 2 Tbsp cider vinegar
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • Directions
    Grind meat, potatoes & onions In large pot, put tomatoes, corn, lima beans (including all the juices; excess liquid can be reduced if you feel there is too much) and vinegar. Add meat, potatoes and onions. Bring slowly to a light boil, stirring regularly. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally for at least an hour. This dish is even better when reheated the next day. Serve with crackers or cornbread and buttermilk.

    Navajo Tacos
    For the Bean Topping
  • 2 c organic pinto beans, rinsed and soaked overnight
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Ingredients
    For the Tortillas
  • 3 c unbleached white flour
  • 1 t salt
  • 2 t baking soda
  • 1/2 c trans fat free spread, melted
  • 3/4 c water
  • Safflower oil for frying (about 1 ½ cups)
  • Ingredients
    For the Tacos
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, shredded
  • 4 lg tomatoes, diced
  • 4 med white onions, diced
  • 1 8-oz pkg shredded soy cheddar or cheddar cheese
  • 1 8-oz pkg shredded soy jalapeño cheese or jalapeño cheese
  • Directions
    1. To make the bean topping, drain beans and place in a medium pot. Add minced garlic and add fresh water to cover by 1 inch. Bring water to boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook until beans are tender, about 1 ¼ hours. Drain.
    2. To make the tortillas, combine flour, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl. Add the melted margarine and water. Stir just until a moist dough forms (it should be stiff enough to hold together). Divide into 6 equal pieces and roll each piece into an 8-inch round.
    3. In a large skillet, add enough oil to be 1 inch deep. Heat over medium heat until oil is hot. Carefully slip tortillas, one at a time, into the hot oil. The dough will bubble in a few seconds. Cook for about 45 seconds until slightly browned, and flip to cook the other side, about 15 to 20 seconds until lightly browned. Remove and drain on paper towels. Repeat for remaining tortillas.
    4. To assemble tacos, combine the cooked beans in a medium bowl. Spoon a few beans into each taco, and serve with other toppings in separate bowls, so people can create tacos to their taste.
