1/2 lb. onions, chopped
1 oz. Tabasco sauce
2 oz. Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce1 T. butter (unlessfat is provided by meat)
salt to taste
pepper to taste
hot water (much water evaporates in long time cooking and
it is necessary to add water all along)

Cut all meats except chickens into cubes no larger than 1
inch. Boil meats and chickens to cover until tender. Remove
from bones. Combine all meats with broth, add all other
ingredients and cook together very slowly for at least 10
hours, stirring to prevent scorching. Add water as needed
and cook until each vegetable has lost its identity. Long slow
cooking is essential for a desirable finished product. Taste
occasionally to see if additional seasoning is needed.
Yield: 3-5 gallons.

NOTE: Large black pots are ideal for cooking this stew. if
you want a quality product, use quality ingredients.
