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

What You'll Need

  • 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

How to Make It

Brown ground beef in skillet; drain off fat and put beef in slow cooker/Crock Pot. Brown bacon and onions; drain off fat, Add bacon, onions and remaining ingredients to slow cooker/Crock Pot. Stir together well. 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.
