Why I Love This Recipe

Easy and delicious. Lots of room for substituting bean varieties. Can easily double or triple or quadruple batch.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 lb ground beef, browned and drained with 1 chopped onion or dried onion
1 can red or kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 can green beans, drained
1 can butter beans, drained
1 can pork and beans
Cooked, crumbled bacon pieces, if desired
3/4 c brown sugar
1/2 c catsup
1 t dry mustard
2 T vinegar


Place beef and beans in large crock pot. Mix sauce and pour over all. Heat on low for 3 hours or more. Can also set on high for 2 hours, or bake in oven at 350 degrees for one hour.
