Kentucky Burgoo

I lived in KY almost 20 years and I don't ever recall having burgoo. It seems like that is the way it always goes, whatever your state is famous for you've never eaten that particuar food or visited that place. Now that I am in NC, I felt it was high time to partake in this native KY dish. It seemed to be a mix of beef stew and vegetable soup, quite tasty!

1-2 Tbsp EVOO
1 lb stew meat
1 large yukon gold potato, diced
1 large onion, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
1/2 c frozen okra, diced
1/2 c frozen lima beans
1/2 c frozen corn
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon dried crumbled rosemary
3 cups chicken broth

Heat large stockpot over medium-high heat and add EVOO. Once heated brown stew meat, turning on all sides. Add chopped potato, onion and garlic. Season with s&p.

Saute 10 mintues. Stir in the rest of the ingedients. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 2 hours. Serve with crusty bread and enjoy!
