Description

I felt like a regular ol’ chuck wagon line cook from the wild, wild west as I was making this savory batch of beans. Ring that dinner bell, because your family is going to come running to eat this great meal!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Bacon, Cut Into Small Pieces
  • 1 pound Ground Beef, Venison Or Turkey
  • 1 whole Large Onion, Diced
  • 1 can (14 1/2 Oz. Size) Butter Beans
  • 1 can (14 1/2 Oz. Size) Kidney Beans
  • 1 can (15 1/2 Oz. Size) Chili Beans In Sauce
  • 2 cans (11 Oz. Size) Pork And Beans
  • ⅔ cups Brown Sugar
  • ½ cups Ketchup
  • 4 Tablespoons Molasses
  • 1 Tablespoon Dry Mustard Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Salt And Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce

Preparation

In a cast iron Dutch oven or other oven-proof pot, brown bacon until starting to crisp a bit, then add in ground meat and onions.

Drain any fat from the pan. Stir in butter beans, kidney beans, chili beans with sauce, and pork and beans.

In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, ketchup, molasses, mustard powder, salt, black pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Add into the bean mixture, stirring well. Cover with Dutch oven lid, and bake at 350ºF for 1 hour.

Other cooking methods:
1. If you like to camp, you can bake it in a Dutch oven over hot coals for a couple of hours.
2. If you don’t have an oven-proof pot, you can pour it into a 9×13 casserole dish and bake covered with foil for 1 hour at 350ºF.

Absolutely delicious as is, but I also added a can of corn and some diced carrots.

Yum! Ate with crusty bread and salad the 1st day. Day 2 we put them in a burrito shell with sour cream and tomatoes. Will definitely make when camping. Simple & delicious!
