This is another recipe that I've shared before. But it's so good and very easy, a great thing to throw together for a winter evening's supper.
Baked Bean Quickie
1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup chopped sweet green pepper (I use the dried flakes)
1/2 cup minced onion (again I use the dried minced)
1/2 cup diced celery (optional)
1 eight ounce can of tomato sauce
1/c cup water
1 clove garlic, minced (garlic salt or powder can be used)
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon thyme
2 tablespoons wine vinegar
1/c cup brown sugar
2 regular size cans of pork and beans (such as VanCamps, S & W, or B & M)
Brown ground beef in skillet until done, drain grease. Saute onions, green peppers and celery until tender. In a large bowl add all ingredients (including cooked ground beef) and mix well. Pour into oven proof casserole dish and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour at 375*. This stuff is so good! It's even better on day two (if there's any left) reheated. Come on guys....even you can make this one and who doesn't love Pork & Beans?
