Cold weather (59°!!) hits central Florida tomorrow, so tonight was the perfect time to make one of our favorite dishes, brisket stew. This was some fantastic Australian Wagyu A+9 brisket from The Butcher Shoppe in Pensacola FL. I usually have a couple pounds left over after each contest and that’s what I used here. Nothing fancy, super easy, quick, and tasty.


  • 2lbs cubed brisket and au jus
  • Beef stock + 16oz water
  • 1 bag coin/crinkle cut carrots – missed the picture
  • 4 red skin potatoes, chunked
  • 2 cans corn, drained
  • large can of Glory green beans + half the liquid
  • 1 can fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 c Swamp Boys Original BBQ Sauce
  • 1/4 c Swamp Boys Bootleg Red BBQ Sauce
  • Kosher salt and fresh pepper to taste

Start the potatoes and carrots simmering in the broth and water for about 10 minutes. Add everything else, return to simmer for 10 minutes. Serve it up and get comfortable.



  • make it tastier by grilling or roasting your own whole carrots, potatoes, corn on the cob, and fresh green beans. Then chunk, dice and slice.
  • The Swamp Boys Original and Bootleg sauces bring a fantastic flavor and complexity to the stew

We are going through a cold snap here in Florida, and by cold I mean 30’s at night and 50’s during the day. Serious cold. When the temps get like this, thoughts of comfort food come to mind. I had a bag of leftover 1st place brisket from the Zephyrhills contest, so brisket and vegetable stew seemed like a great choice. I do the cooking at our house and I like to keep things simple, fast, fresh, and flavorful. This recipe totally incorporates those characteristics.

Fresh From Florida vegetables and brisket

Fresh From Florida vegetables and leftover brisket

2lbs brisket leftovers, cut into chunks
1 bag of fresh carrot sticks
1 bag of fresh green beans
3 large red skin potatoes
3-4 Tbs beef base
3-4 Tbs cornstarch
1/2 cup + Swamp Boys Original Sauce


Hearty, healthy, thick, comfort food for a chilly night





Wash the potatoes, pierce with fork, and microwave 6 minutes or until almost tender, turning once. Then cut into bite sized chunks.
Cut the carrot sticks and green beans into thirds, steam for 4-5 minutes or until almost tender.
In a large pot add a quart of water, the beef base, and any au jus you saved from the brisket. Bring to a gentle boil, and incorporate the cornstarch and stir to thicken. Boil 1-2 minutes more. Reduce heat to medium, add carrots and green beans, stir for a minute or so, fold in the potatoes and stir gently so you don’t break them up. After a couple of more minutes add in the meat and Swamp Boys Original sauce and gently simmer another 4-5 minutes. Remember you are just warming the meat, not cooking it. Taste for seasoning and make adjustments. For a more robust flavor, substitute Swamp Boys Bootleg Red Sauce for Original. I like to add some BPS Dessert Gold and Everglades Seasoning. Enjoy!
