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!

Barbecue Pork and Vegetable Soup
Serves 6


2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
2 stalks celery, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (14.5oz.) can fire roasted tomatoes with seasonings
4 cups chicken broth
2 cups beef broth
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables with lima beans
1 cup frozen O’Brien potatoes
2 cups shredded leftover pork roast
1 cup barbecue sauce
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
Kosher salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes, to taste
Hot sauce, optional for serving


In a soup pot, saute onion, bell pepper, and celery over medium –high heat until onion begins to get translucent. Add garlic and saute one minute. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Lower the heat, and simmer for 45 minutes to an hour. Cook until potatoes and lima beans are tender. Serve with hot sauce if desired.

  1. Oh, I love seeing that bottle of hot sauce--that is my favorite brand (the only one I buy).

    I've never had BBQ sauce in a soup before, but I like the idea. This is a good way to use leftover pork, something different from the usual shredded pork sandwiches.
    Thanks for sharing, Denise.
