This beef and bean dish makes a delicious meal with hot baked cornbread, and it also makes a nice side dish for barbecue.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 12 ounces bacon (diced)
  • 1 cup onion (chopped)
  • 2 cans (16 ounces each) pork and beans
  • 1 can (15 to 16 ounces) kidney beans (drained)
  • 1 can (15 to 16 ounces) butter limas (drained)
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons liquid smoke
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Steps to Make It

  1. Brown ground beef in a skillet

  2. Drain off fat and put beef in slow cooker/Crock Pot.

  3. Brown bacon and onions. 

  4. Drain off fat from the bacon and onions.

  5. Add bacon, onions and remaining ingredients to slow cooker/Crock Pot.

  6. Stir together well.

  7. Cover and cook on low 4-9 hours.

    Cynthia's Notes: I usually use about 1-1/2 LB ground chuck and I use 1 LB of bacon. This increases the amount so I can freeze for another meal.
