2 lbs ground beef
1/4 lb bacon
L can pork and beans, undrained
L onion, chopped
Cook bacon in large skillet; remove and place on paper towels to drain off fat. Sauté onions in bacon fat, then drain onions. Brown beef in bacon fat, then drain off all the fat.
Add bacon and onions to the browned meat, adding some catsup and brown sugar to taste. Can also add a small can of tomatoes, barbecue sauce, tomato sauce...whatever consistency/taste that pleases your cowboy!
Well, the stew I mentioned yesterday really doesn’t have a recipe, so I had to think about the how-to when asked for it.
When I made the potato soup Saturday, I went ahead and cooked extra bacon and onions for another dish, not knowing what I was going to make; therefore, last night’s ground beef didn’t get browned in the bacon fat. It wasn’t as good as usual, so don’t miss that step. Max and Kathy liked it (and wanted the recipe), so here it is.
Bon appetit, y’all! Giddy up…
