I love, love, LOVE this recipe! I usually make it for a big weekend meal like a cookout or Sunday dinner and then have enough leftovers to serve again during the week as a side dish. And the best part? The onions LOVE it!
This is great to bring as a covered dish too because you can cook it in a crock pot and take it with you!
Angel Baby actually made them this time. She’s 8 and is becoming quite the cook. The only thing I did to help with these was to open the cans and cut the onion. She did everything else!
1 pound ground beef
1 onion, diced
Salt & pepper
2 28-oz. cans basic, plain jane pork n’ beans
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup barbeque sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
Brown ground beef and onions with salt and pepper to taste until meat is cooked through. Drain fat then add meat mixture to a crock pot or large saucepan.
Open cans of beans and pour off any liquid that’s settled at the top. Add beans and remaining ingredients to the meat mixture and stir to incorporate. For crock pot cooking, cook on low for 4-6 hours. For stove-top cooking, heat over medium-high heat until simmering then reduce heat to low and cook, covered, for 1 hour.
