Mulligan stew, similar to hotch-potch, hot pot and Kentucky Burgoo, is a stew made with whatever vegetables and meats are available.
The name supposedly originated in hobo camps in the early 20th century, probably from the name Mulligan, relating to Irish Stew.
According to the ‘Oxford English Dictionary’, its first appearance in print was in the January 10, 1904 issue of the Yukon Midnight Sun - “All the roadhouses served big Christmas dinners and most of them made a mulligan.”
