Kentucky Burgoo


This versatile Southern dish has many different interpretations. Here we use a combination of smoked bacon, Italian pork sausage, beef chuck steak, and flavorful chicken thighs to add heady flavor. Cook the rice in with the stew, so the entire dish is permeated with rich, robust flavor.
