1 pound of lean ground beef,
1 large onion, diced, brown these together and drain
1 dried bag of 15 bean mix: cook in pressure cooker until done
OR you can buy canned beans: 2 cans of kidney beans and 2 cans of garbanzo beans
In the crockpot add:
Beef, onions, and beans plus
2 cans of baked beans (any brand)
1 cup of real bacon bits or fry your own (6 slices)
1/2 c. ketchup
1/2 c. of brown sugar
1 T. vinegar
1 t. of prepared mustard
1 t. salt
Mix it all and cook on high for 2-3 hours or low for 4-6 hours
OR in the oven 350 degrees for 1 hour
If you choose to fry your own bacon, cooking it with the onions saves time..
If you do not have a pressure cooker, you can still cook your own dried beans in the crockpot, but you have to plan for this a day in advance.
I put this together and left it simmering in the crockpot while we were at church this past Sunday. It really turned out well. It was so nice to come home to food, ready to eat!
