Made it today and it was good.
Now then, the Burgoo to which I must compare it was what I have had a few times at a place called "Mark's Feed Store" in Louisville. Their recipe seemed pretty much the same except thicker (as if made with Cream of Chicken soup instead of chicken broth) and a tad "peppery-er". I really liked it that way and so the next time I make it (and there will be a next time), I will likely try it with the Cream of Chicken soup and a little more pepper.
I made this using deer meat instead of beef. I had to add salt and garlic powder to taste and thicken the juices to make it like a stew. All the guys really liked it.
I'm anxious to give this recipe a try, but I have one question regarding ingredients. You mention:
1/4 teaspoon ground red bell peppers
When I see "red bell pepper", I understand that to mean the large, sweet variety. Using "1/4 teaspoon ground" makes me believe it should be more of the cayenne variety. Unless I hear otherwise, I'll go with the cayenne.
Yep, pretty sure they meant cayenne. Will update the recipe to reflect that.
