As most of you know, I am from Kentucky. One of the best known events in Kentucky, The Kentucky Derby, takes place this weekend. Now, while I do not gamble or bet on these horses, you can not live in Kentucky and not know about the Kentucky Derby. This is a recipe for burgoo. Burgoo is a Kentucky recipe and from what I have been told is served at the KY Derby in paper cups. This recipe calls for a lot of meat, but the orginal burgoo recipes were used to use up leftover meats and people just throw a little bit of everything in it. I first tried this recipe at a cooking school held in my county and just looking at the recipe, I thought I would hate it, but the small sample I was given made me want more. I have made this recipe several times and I really like it. Hope you enjoy it as well.
