Barbecue Pork And Vegetable Soup

Burgoo has been on my to do list for quite a while. I just never get around to putting it on the list. Well this week I made my Slow Cooker Roast Pork and had plenty of leftovers. When I thought about what to do with it, Burgoo came to mind. I looked at the recipes I had saved and went looking in the pantry. I couldn't make either recipe. So I improvised. I guess you can say this soup is “Burgoo” inspired. Definitely not authentic, but really delicious. It is sweet, smoky and loaded with veggies. If you don't have leftover pork I am sure leftover chicken, brisket, sausage or any combination would be delicious. I still plan to make an authentic burgoo one day, but I plan to try this again with chicken and sausage too. Yumm! BBQ Soup!
