Introduction

I've seen many variations of this recipe, but this is the best one I've had. It originally came from my Sister-in-law's Mom. Our family enjoys these so much they are referred to as "THE beans".

Ingredients

    1 lb lean ground beef
    1 lb bacon, crumbled
    1 c onion, chopped finely (or use minced onion)
    2 tsp salt
    1 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
    2 tsp mustard
    1 c ketchup
    2 (15-16 oz) cans kidney beans
    1 (15-16 oz) can butter beans
    2 (20 oz) cans Bush's Pork 'n Beans (If you can't find Bush's you can substitute Van Kamp's but you have to add a little molasses.)
    1 (15-16 oz) can lima beans, drained
    4 tsp vinegar

Directions

Brown together ground beef, crumbled bacon, and onion. Put mixture in the removable crock of a crock pot. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well. Bake in crock for 1 1/2 hours at 325 degrees. After baking keep warm in the regular part of the crock pot while serving. (Make sure you cook it all the way through before putting in the regular crock pot part.)

Note: This BARELY fits in a 5-quart crock pot. To avoid spilling when baking you may want to use a 6-quart crock pot.

  • Very Good
    I've had this three of the last four days, and still not tired of it. Yummy! - 6/10/14

  • I make similar beans, but don't get 80 servings of 1/2 cup. A five qt. crockpot would hold 20 cups, so you would get 40 servings of 1/2 cup. - 7/12/11

  • Incredible!
    I found these in my grandma's church cookbook and we had them last night and they are so good! I would think that they would be higher in calories though. - 7/26/10
