Eastern Kentucky Burgoo

This famous Bluegrass stew consists of at least three different meats (usually pork, beef and chicken, although you’ll find veal or lamb, too), and a mixture of potatoes, corn, carrots, onion, celery, lima beans – basically, whatever you can throw in the pot. The slow-cooked, well-seasoned result takes center stage at many a social gathering here, including the Kentucky Derby. Although many consider burgoo a Western Kentucky specialty, you’ll find it on the menu at restaurants statewide.
