Blogger Spotlight: A Farmgirl’s Dabbles Brings Backyard Booyah Inside
Traditional booyah kettles can hold more than 50 gallons of stew. We decided to tackle a version for one hungry family at home.
Dive into the local favorites from all over the country no matter where you’re at with Cook’s Country Eats Local.

Prepare to fill your kitchen with the sweet smells of St. Louis Butter Cake following a few slices of authentic New England Bar Pizza as you cook like the locals do. Follow along with #CCEatsLocal.
With the help of Cook’s Country’s adventures to Green Bay, Wisconsin, we find that “Booyah” is much more than a slang term, but a delicious fall tradition packed full of veggies and meat. Brenda, at A Farmgirl’s Dabbles, cooks up a pot of this hearty dish for an indoor crowd while sharing stories of huge outdoor gatherings in the Upper Midwest surrounding giant pots of this delectable stew.

“You’re gonna love this rich and flavorful Booyah recipe I’m sharing with you today, scaled down in quantity from traditional mega-batch recipes made in giant kettles to feed the masses. Yes, this one can be enjoyed wherever you live, from your very own kitchen. But… if you’re ever invited to a Booyah, please promise me you’ll go!”
“The broth is heavenly, super flavorful with a gorgeous silken quality from the gelatin of the beef bones. And chunks of tender meats and vegetables in every single spoonful make it rich and hearty. If you’re looking for a new fall tradition, maxed out in homemade warmth and comfort, this Booyah recipe has my vote.”
“This recipe, even though it was scaled down from a full-fledged booyah recipe, still requires quite a bit of hands-on work, plus a good amount of time (essential for full flavor and tender meats). But I promise you, it’s absolutely worth it.”
